A comparison of low starch maize silage and grass silage and the effect of concentrate supplementation of the forages or inclusion of maize grain with the maize silage on milk production by dairy cows



A comparison of low starch maize silage and grass silage and the effect of concentrate supplementation of the forages or inclusion of maize grain with the maize silage on milk production by dairy cows



Livestock Production Science 57(2): 95-111



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.
