Twelve multiparous Holstein cows calving in fall and 12 calving in summer were blocked into four groups and used in a 2 x 2 x 2 factorial to determine the effects of season of calving, dietary fat, and protein degradability on milk production and efficiency of NEL utilization in a 16-wk study. Blocks were assigned randomly to one of four dietary treatment combinations: 1) control concentrate plus soybean meal (high degradability protein supplement); 2) control concentrate plus a mixture of… CONTINUE READING
