Studies of the changes in the chemical composition, digestibility and nutritive value of herbage at different growth stages



Studies of the changes in the chemical composition, digestibility and nutritive value of herbage at different growth stages



K. LantbrAkad. Tidskr 90: 315-35. bibl. 4



Determinations were made of the changes in the digestibility and chemical composition of legume/ grass forage at different stages of growth before the first and the second cut, by means of the chromium tracer method. In absolute values, the content of organic matter and crude fibre in the dry matter increased by 0.03 and 0.36 %, respectively, while the protein, ether extract and N-free-extract content of the dry matter decreased 0.22, 0.03 and 0.09 %, respectively, daily.
