The dry matter yield and nutritive value of perennial warm-season grasses and corn silages were evaluated for preference and nutritive value when cut a different maturities and supplemented with crude protein and energy.
Bermudagrass hays cut from a swine lagoon spray field prior to and following effluent application and hays cut from a non-waste bermudagrass field were evaluated for preference based on short-term dry matter intake by cattle, sheep, and goats.
The dry matter yield and nutritive value of flaccidgrass, with potential as a ruminant feed as well as for biomass stock and adapted to the Mid-Atlantic Region, was evaluated for its response to a range of nitrogen rates when cut at three maturities.
This bulletin brings together 18 independent experiments that address aspects of nutritive value and quality of perennial warm-season forages preserved as hay.
