The changes in agricultural policy and the increased concern about the effects of intensive production systems on the natural environment may lead to a reduction in the levels of nitrogen Ž . N fertilization on grassland. The aim of this review is to quantify the consequences of lowering N fertilization on dairy cow nutrition. For grass species harvested at the same age of regrowth, a Ž . reduction in N fertilization leads to a decrease in organic matter OM digestibility by 0.02 units, Ž . but… CONTINUE READING
