Six lactating dairy cows were used in a three period, part balanced changeover design experiment to investigate the effects of forage digestibility and concentrate composition on the efficiency of nutrient utilization in lactating dairy cows. Six treatments comprising three forage regimens and two concentrate types (starch v. fibre) were examined in a 3 x 2 factorial design. The three forage regimens were high digestibility grass silage offered ad lib. (HA) or restricted to 6.5 kg dry matter/d… CONTINUE READING
