Intake and liveweight gains of Limousin steers feeding on either grass or lucerne silages

Intake and liveweight gains of Limousin steers feeding on either grass or lucerne silages

Beef from grass and forage: 169-172

Grass and lucerne silages were prepared in summer 1999 from pure stands of ryegrass and lucerne (cv. Vertus), which had been established in July 1997. Crops were wilted and baled with a biological inoculant (Ecosyl). The silages were then used in a beef growth trial with 24 Limousin steers (initial liveweight 398 kg) Three groups each consisting of 8 animals were offered ad libitum grass silage or a mixture of grass and lucerne at either 60:40 or 20:80 on a DM basis.
