Extract

Forage mixtures containing urea-treated whole crop wheat (WCW) have been shown to be used less efficiently than expected by dairy cows due to low digestibility, particularly of the starch. The purpose of the present experiment was to measure the contribution of the rumen to the digestibility of diets based on grass silage or mixtures of grass silage and urea-treated WCW.
