The effects of harvesting and processing methods on the value of net energy for lactation of corn grain were investigated. Lactating Holstein cows were used in a replicated Latin square design with a 2 x 2 factorial arrangement of treatments. Treatments were different methods for the storage (dry or high moisture) and processing (rolled or ground) of corn grains. Alfalfa silage was the forage source in the diets. Indirect calorimetry was conducted using a 6-d nutrient balance protocol… CONTINUE READING
