6 samples of high-moisture (3 with high and 3 with low contents of water-soluble carbohydrates (WSC)) and 3 samples of wilted Italian ryegrass herbage were chopped and ensiled in laboratory silos (2-1 capacity) at 3 levels of initial air inclusion adjusted by consolidation of the ensiled material to give 300, 450 or 600 kg/m3. Some silos were evacuated and re-sealed, while the remainder were allowed to remain unsealed for 3 days. All silos were kept at 25 degrees G for 3 weeks.
