Performance of dairy steers fed whole-crop barley silages harvested at different stages of maturity



Performance of dairy steers fed whole-crop barley silages harvested at different stages of maturity



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



Sixty-three younger (Exp. 1, live weight (LW) 119 kg) and 48 older (Exp. 2, LW 414 kg) pen-housed dairy steers were used in twelve-week long trials to investigate effects of maturity stage of whole-crop barley silages (WCBS) on animal performance. Precision-chopped WCBS harvested at heading (H), milk-(M) and dough stage (D) of maturity were fed <i>ad libitum</i> and supplemented with concentrates at 0.6-1 kg head<sup>-1</sup> d<sup>-1</sup>.
