Meadow fescue (MF, Festuca elatior), orchard grass (ORG, Dactylis glomerata, L.), quack grass (QG, Elytrigia repens), and reed canarygrass (RCG, Phalaris arundinacea) were sown in micro-sward boxes (79 cm × 47 cm × 11.5 cm) to investigate intake characteristics of four grass species. Once established, micro-swards were defoliated at 21-d intervals before being offered to non-pregnant, non-lactating Holstein cows in short-term tests. Boxes were weighed (± 0.1 g) before and after each test during… Expand
