Abstract The practicality of allowing Holstein yearling heifers to self-feed direct-cut, orchardgrass-clover silage from a bunker silo through a self-feeding gate was studied. Corn meal was added during ensiling in a bunker silo at rates of 10%, 5%, 5%, and 0% of the wet forage weight in trials 1, 2, 3, and 4. Holstein yearling heifers were allowed to self-feed the resulting complete feed mix directly from the bunker silo through the use of a self-feeding gate for 112 days. During trial 5, two… CONTINUE READING
