Maize harvesting time and cutting height: effects on production, conservation and utilisation of silages in beef fattening


Zootecnica e Nutrizione Animale 23(1): 27-39
Maize harvesting time and cutting height: effects on production, conservation and utilisation of silages in beef fattening
A trial was carried out to investigate the effects of maize harvesting times, dough stage (E1) and advanced dough stage (E2), as well as cutting heights, standard cut (20 cm above soil level, TN) and high cut (40 cm, TA), on silage production, conservation and utilization in beef finishing (Polish Friesian feeder cattle), with and without supplementary maize meal (at 0.5% of liveweight). A FAO 600 hybrid was grown at a population density of 6.9 plants/msuperscript 2 and 2 irrigations.
