Effect of different genotypes on feeding value of maize silages and performance of dairy cows

Effect of different genotypes on feeding value of maize silages and performance of dairy cows

Landbauforschung Volkenrode 52(3): 157-165

Two feeding trials with 36 dairy cows each were carried out for 7 weeks each in order to compare 4 maize silages of different hybrids (trial 1: hybrids A and B; trial 2: hybrids C and D). These four hybrids were chosen, because Loose (1999) showed a high effective ruminal degradability of starch in situ for kernels of hybrids A and C and a low degradability for hybrids B and D.
