EXPERTISE

The estimation of dry matter quantities of forages packed in square and round bales can be done much more accurate. This has become evident from research done by BLGG AgroXpertus in cooperation with Wageningen UR Livestock Research.  Underestimation of quantities with current equation In the research, at first, the accuracy of the current prediction equation was defined. For this, the...
  High moisture corn: the alternative for dried and grinded corn Typically, diets consumed by high producing dairy cows contain high concentrations of starch from cereals like wheat and corn. Grinded corn is one of the most common grain fed to dairy animals. It is also one of the most interesting ones as it contains a very high level of energy. However in large areas in the world corn...
Maize silage is becoming increasingly important in dairy farming. On many dairy farms the greater part of the ration consists of maize silage. An important indicator for the quality of maize is the content of bypass starch. Bypass starch is the part of the starch that is not degraded in the rumen, but is digested almost completely by enzymes in the cow’s small intestine. With the current...
 The quality of maize silage has a very big influence on the milk production and financial results on a dairy farm. But what is good maize silage for the cows? How to grow it? How to conserve it? What are the qualities realised on different farms in different regions in Russia and how does this compare with maize silages in other countries?To provide answers to these questions and to...
High quality grassland provides the basis for economic milk production. In order to optimise the productivity of grassland, it needs to be ‘fed’ with sufficient nutrients and minerals. Slurries and solid manures are valuable fertilisers; they could provide up to 20% of the nitrogen (N); 100% of the phosphorus (P) and 80% of the potassium (K) required by the grassland. In various countries, the...
