Intake, rumen fermentation, degradability and digestion kinetics in beef cattle offered autumn grass herbage differing in regrowth interval



Intake, rumen fermentation, degradability and digestion kinetics in beef cattle offered autumn grass herbage differing in regrowth interval



Grass And Forage Science: 3, 369-379



The effects of a 10-d increase in regrowth interval (35 and 45 d) of a predominantly perennial ryegrass sward harvested in two periods in the autumn in Ireland on feed intake, rumen fermentation, <i>in situ</i> degradability and rumen digesta kinetics was examined using six ruminally cannulated Holstein-Friesian steers in three replicates of a 2x2 crossover design.
