Grass silage as a basic feed for store lambs. 3. Effect of barley supplementation of silages varying in chop length on silage intake and lamb performance



Grass silage as a basic feed for store lambs. 3. Effect of barley supplementation of silages varying in chop length on silage intake and lamb performance



Grass and Forage Science 51(4): 389-402



An experiment was carried out to study the effect of silage chop length and barley supplementation on silage intake and the performance of store lambs. The silages were cut from a perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) regrowth at a relatively mature stage of growth in early July. Different types of harvester were used to produce a long silage (L), single-chopped (S), double-chopped (D), medium precision-chopped (MP) or a short precision-chopped (SP) silage.
