Intakes and in vivo apparent digestibilities of four types of conserved grass forage by ponies

Intakes and in vivo apparent digestibilities of four types of conserved grass forage by ponies

Animal Science 71(3): 527-534

The intakes and in vivo apparent digestibilities (AD) of four forages: hay (H), haylage (HY), big-bale silage (BB) and clamp silage (CS), were investigated in Welsh cross pony geldings (live weight (LW) ca. 330 kg). The trial was a 4 x 4 Latin-square design with diets offered at 1.65 g/kg dry matter (DM) per100 kg LW per day, in two equal meals.
