The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of daily pasture allowance and grass silage supplementation on milk production performance, grazing behaviour, rumen function, and blood and urinary metabolites in early lactation of dairy cows grazing on low herbage mass pastures. The study was conducted with 32 Holstein–Friesian cows over a time period of 63 days. Prior to experimental treatment, milk production, body weight, and days in milk averaged 23.8±0.70 kg/day, 537±9.6 kg, and… Expand
