  • Published 2006

Abstract

In intensive dairy farming, perennial ryegrass is among the main forages used because of its rapid response to nitrogen (N) and its high herbage yield. Due to a high N fertilization and cutting at a young and leafy stage, grass has a high crude-protein (CP) content that is rapidly degraded by rumen microbes. The supply of N often exceeds the supply of… (More)
