A comparison of the effects on voluntary intake by sheep of either dietary or intra-ruminal addition of silage juices






Animal Science 70(2): 325-333

A comparison of the effects on voluntary intake by sheep of either dietary or intra-ruminal addition of silage juices

Two silages were made from a regrowth of perennial ryegrass following a 24-h wilt using 2.5 litre/t (LF) or 5.5 litre/t (HF) of Add Safe (an aqueous solution of ammonium tetraformate, Trouw Nutrition, Cheshire, UK). Composition of silages LF and HF, respectively, were for DM (g/kg) 205, 217; CP (g/kg DM) 106, 104; digestible organic matter (g/kg DM) 665, 692, pH 3.8, 3.9; lactic acid (g/kg DM) 103, 84; neutralizing value (meq/kg DM) 1051, 892; and acetic acid (g/kg DM) 18.4, 14.0.

Juice was extracted from a ryegrass silage after fermentation times of 0, 51 or 291 h. Three solutions of D/L lactic acid were prepared to have the same neutralizing values (NV) as the silage juices. Experiment A measured the intakes by sheep of d...
