BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to investigate how some small changes in the forage content of maize and lucerne silage and in the ration between forage and concentrate in the diet of dairy cows affect milk quality. Milk quality was assessed by quantitative descriptive sensory analysis and by analysis of tocopherols and carotenoids as well as fatty acid composition. RESULTS Changing the ratio between maize silage and lucerne silage from 5:1 to 2:1 increased milk fat content of… CONTINUE READING
