The effects of processed, urea-treated whole-crop wheat or maize silage and supplementation of whole-crop wheat on the performance of dairy cows



The effects of processed, urea-treated whole-crop wheat or maize silage and supplementation of whole-crop wheat on the performance of dairy cows



Livestock Production Science 95(1/2): 1-10



Forty-four early lactation dairy cows were divided into four treatment groups to examine the effects of processed, urea-treated whole-crop wheat (pWCW), maize silage and carbohydrate supplement type to pWCW on dry matter (DM) intake and milk production.
