Silage and milk production, a comparison between wilted and unwilted grass silages made with and without formic acid



Silage and milk production, a comparison between wilted and unwilted grass silages made with and without formic acid



J. Br. Grassld Soc 25(4): 278-84



3 grass silages, all made in mid-June from the same herbage, were compared in a 12-wk winter-feeding experiment with 12 Ayrshire cows. The silages were fed ad lib. with a supplement of moist barley and groundnut cake. Silage A was made from unwilted herbage with no additive, silage B from identical herbage treated with 1/2 gal formic acid/ton of herbage, and silage C from the herbage after wilting for 28 h.
