Effect of partial neutralization of grass silage on feed intake by lambs



Effect of partial neutralization of grass silage on feed intake by lambs



Sustainable grassland productivity: Proceedings of the 21st General Meeting of the European Grassland Federation, Badajoz, Spain, 3-6 April 2006: 532-534



Effect of partial neutralization of direct cut silage on dry matter (DM) intake was studied with forty-two lambs. The silage offered ad libitum was either untreated or partially neutralized with sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3). A low (8 g kg-1 fresh weight) and high (16 g kg-1) level of NaHCO3 was used. To avoid silage fermentation NaHCO3 was added to the silage just before feeding.
