Intake, eating behavior and ruminating activity of heifers fed silage of various moisture content inoculated with lactic acid bacteria (L. casei)



Intake, eating behavior and ruminating activity of heifers fed silage of various moisture content inoculated with lactic acid bacteria (L. casei)



Journal of Rakuno Gakuen University, Natural Science 25(2): 285-292



A study was conducted to determine the voluntary intake, eating behavior, and ruminating activity of heifers fed on 4 types of silage. Round-baled silage produced from wilted 1st-cut timothy grass was offered containing low (40.1%) or optimal moisture content (53.8%), with or without lactic acid bacteria (L. casei). The silage was offered ad libitum twice a day to four Holstein heifers (average body weight 494 kg) according to a 4x4 Latin square design.
