The primary objective of this meta-analysis was to quantitatively analyze and discuss recent (1997–2005) data evaluating effects of forage particle size of total mixed rations (TMR) on digestion, feed intake and milk production in early lactating dairy cows. For this, a data file containing 59–93 treatment means was generated from 25 published experiments investigating effects of particle size of grass or maize silage included separately or combined in a TMR. Another aim of the study was to… CONTINUE READING
