Five multiparous Holstein cows cannulated in the rumen and duodenum that averaged 63 d in milk were used in a 5 x 5 Latin square design with 14-d periods to evaluate the incremental substitution of soyhulls for corn in the diet. Diets contained 23% alfalfa silage, 23% corn silage, and 54% concentrate on a dry matter (DM) basis. Pelleted soyhulls replaced corn in the concentrate to supply 0, 10, 20, 30, or 40% of the dietary DM. The intakes of DM and organic matter were unaffected by treatments… CONTINUE READING
