Effect of feeding maize silage and hay or wilted grass silage on DM intakes and milk production of cows



Effect of feeding maize silage and hay or wilted grass silage on DM intakes and milk production of cows



Pol'nohospodarstvo. 14: 4, 278-85



10 similar Red Pied cows in 2nd and 3rd lactations were used in a feeding trial in which (i) maize silage + hay, and (ii), wilted grass silage (40-50% DM) given as the sole bulk fodders, were compared. The results showed that compared with (i), (ii) gave higher FCM yields (+ -11%, calculated/100 kg live weight, P <= 0. 01) and the DM intake from the bulk fodder was 28-31% higher.
