Dietary factors that alter the intake of effective fiber were evaluated for their effects on rumen fermentation, digestion, and milk production using a double 4 x 4 quasi-Latin square design with a 2(3) factorial arrangement of treatments. The dietary factors were extent of barley grain processing, coarse (1.60 mm) or flat (1.36 mm); forage-to-concentrate (F:C) ratio, low (35:65) or high (55:45) (dry matter basis); and forage particle length, long (7.59 mm) or short (6.08 mm). Eight lactating… Expand
