Effects of frequency of feeding on production characteristics and feed utilization in lactating dairy cows



Effects of frequency of feeding on production characteristics and feed utilization in lactating dairy cows



Jour Dairysci 44(4): 664-671



Manuscript No. 468. 1961. A 3 x 3 Latin-square design was used with 3 groups of 3 cows and treatments of 2, 4, or 7 feedings daily. The effect of increased frequency of feeding on various production characteristics was reflected in trends of increasing pounds of milk production, pounds of 4% fat-corrected milk (35.1 lb., 40.1 lb., and 40.4 lb. when fed 2, 4, or 7 times daily), pounds and per cent of milk fat, pounds of solids-not-fat, and pounds of total solids daily per cow. Feeding interval had no effect on body weights. Increased frequency of feeding resulted in more total feed intake and a decreasing amplitude in the daily fecal chromium oxide excretion curve. When fed 2, 4 or 7 times daily, the digestibility of dry matter, as determined by the chromium oxide ratio technique, was 51.59, 55.52, and 55.10%, respectively.
