Effect of grass silage chop length on chewing activity and digestibility



Effect of grass silage chop length on chewing activity and digestibility



Biodiversity And Animal Feed: Future Challenges For Grassland Production: Edings Of The 22nd General Meeting Of The European Grassland Federation, Uppsala, Sweden, 9-12 E



Round bale grass silage harvested early (D-value 757 g kg<sup>-1</sup> DM) or at a normal (D-value 696 g kg<sup>-1</sup> DM) time was used to study the effect of harvesting time, chop length and their interaction on chewing activity and digestibility by dairy cows. Six early lactating Norwegian Red cows were used in a 6x6 Latin square with 3-week periods. Chewing activity was measured using IGER Behaviour recorders, and digestibility was measured by total collection of faeces.
