Digestibility of grass silage.
AbstractA total of 50 grass silages were tested in digestibility trials using Texel wethers. The feed silages were wilted of varying DM contents and treated with cell-wall degrading enzymes. The accuracy of feed evaluation was studied using laboratory analyses, including cell-wall analyses, incubation in vitro with rumen fluid and the enzymic procedure. A comparison was made between these results and the current and recently suggested procedures for prediction of digestibility of grass silage.
