Effects of heat treatment and physical processing of cottonseed on nutrient digestibility and production performance by lactating cows.

Abstract

Four primiparous Holstein cows were used in an experiment with a 5 x 4 Youden square design. The effects of heat processing and particle size of cottonseed used in the diets of dairy cows were investigated. Dietary treatments were control (3.6% tallow, 4.5% casein), whole cottonseed, ground cottonseed, roasted whole cottonseed, and roasted ground cottonseed… (More)
