Abstract The objective of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of five models predicting dry matter intake (DMI) in dairy cows fed total mixed ration (TMR). The five models were the North American model from NRC, and the Northern European models: NorFor (Denmark, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden), TDMI (Finland), Zom (the Netherlands), and Gruber (Austria, Germany, Switzerland). The evaluated models represent different approaches to predict DMI. One approach uses only animal characteristics; a… CONTINUE READING
