The effects of forage conservation and harvesting method on DM and CP degradability of grass cut at the boot stage were determined using nylon bags incubated in the rumen of two fistulated lactating cows. Samples of fresh grass, wilted grass prior to and after ensiling in a stack silo and cut with either a cylinder-type forage harvester (11.3 mm of length… (More)
