Chemical analyses and in vitro fermentations were on three corn silages, four legume-grass silages, and four corn-hay crop silage mixtures which had been fed to sheep for 21 days. In vivo data were collected for voluntary silage intake and apparent digestibility of energy. Forage nutritive value was expressed as digestible energy intake. Multiple regression equations were developed to determine the more reliable methods to evaluate voluntary intake, digestibility, and nutritive value of silage… CONTINUE READING
