Sixty-four multiparous Friesian cows were given one of eight diets from weeks 4-20 of lactation at the former National Institute for Research in Dairying, Shinfield, Reading in 1983-84. The diets consisted of 13.5 kg/day of experimental concentrates plus hay at 4.5 kg/day (fixed) or ad libitum. Concentrates were high-starch (S) based on cereal grains and cassava, high-fibre (F) based on high-quality by-products, and two intermediate types containing 2:1 (SF) and 1:2 (FS) starch : fibre, all… CONTINUE READING
