The effect of partially replacing (60%) a high-quality grass silage (GS) with an immature, low-starch maize silage (LSM) on forage intake and milk yield in dairy cows, was studied. Responses in milk yield and composition to increased concentrate supplementation (4, 6 or 8 kg/head daily) of these forages were also determined.
