Comparison of Dried Molassed and Unmolassed Sugar Beet Feed and Barley as Energy Supplements on Nutrient Digestion and Supply in Silage Fed Cows

  • D E Beever (a1), J D Sutton (a1), D J Thomson (a1), D J Napper (a1) and D L Gale (a1)...


In the previous paper, Sutton et al. (1985) examined the effect of concentrate type on the performance of lactating dairy cows and reported significant effects with respect to silage intake and milk protein concentration. In this experiment, conducted in parallel with that reported by Sutton et al. (1988), the effect of concentrate type on nutrient digestion in the rumen and protein supply to the tissues of lactating cows was examined, although the comparison was restricted to examination of the high protein diets only.
