Feeding behaviour, food intake and milk production responses of lactating dairy cows to diets based on grass silage of high or low dry-matter content, supplemented with quickly and slowly fermentable energy sources



Feeding behaviour, food intake and milk production responses of lactating dairy cows to diets based on grass silage of high or low dry-matter content, supplemented with quickly and slowly fermentable energy sources



Animal Science 71(2): 349-357



Twelve Holstein/Friesian dairy cows in early lactation were offered low (L; 215 g/kg) or high (H; 449 g/kg) dry matter (DM) content silages, prepared using material from the same sward (UK). In addition, all animals received 9.6 kg/day, of supplements based on barley (B), sugar-beet pulp (SB) or a 50:50 mixture of the 2 (B:SB), in 2 equal meals at 07:30 and 14:30 h. The 6 treatments were offered in an incomplete Latin square design.
