Concentrate mixture, grass pellets, fodder beets, or barley as supplements tosilage ad libitum for high-yielding dairy cows on organic farms

Mogensen L; Kristensen T Abstract In Denmark, organic feeding is typically based on homegrown feed with a highproportion of roughage. Which crop to grow and use as supplementary feed is investigated in thispaper. In three experiments, barley (B) was compared… Read moreConcentrate mixture, grass pellets, fodder beets, or barley as supplements tosilage ad libitum for high-yielding dairy cows on organic farms
