Twelve cows (8 multiparous and 4 primiparous) were divided into four treatments to study the effects of direct-cut and wilted silage with or without rapeseed meal supplementation (RSM0 or RSM16) on feed intake and milk production. Experimental design consisted of a 4 4 balanced Latin square with four 3-week periods. Silages were given ad libitum and the concentrate was provided in ®xed amounts: 10 kg per day for multiparous cows and 8 kg per day for primiparous cows. Both silages were well… CONTINUE READING
