Previous experiments have shown important differences in milk production when mixed starch sources were replaced by mixed high quality by-products in high concentrate diets with hay as the forage (Sutton et al. 1987). The purpose of the present experiment was to compare rolled barley with sugar beet feed (SBF) in both molassed and unmolassed forms when given alone with grass silage in a high-concentrate diet. Additionally the effect of altering protein concentration of the concentrates was examined.
