Effects of Lactobacillus buchneri as a silage inoculant or probiotic on in vitro organic matter digestibility, gas production and volatile fatty acids of low dry-matter whole-crop maize silage
Our objective was to investigate Lactobacillus buchneri as a silage inoculant or probiotic on in vitro ruminal measurements of low dry-matter whole-crop maize silage. In vitro gas production was conducted using untreated ...
Effects of feeding corn silage inoculated with microbial additives on the ruminal fermentation, microbial protein yield, and growth performance of lambs
(Amer Soc Animal Science, 2014-12-01)
This study aimed to examine the effects of feeding corn silage inoculated without or with either Lactobacillus buchneri (LB) alone or a combination of LB and Lactobacillus plantarum (LBLP) on the apparent digestibility, ...
Yield and nutritive value of the silage of corn intercropped with tropical perennial grasses
The objective of this work was to compare the yield and nutritive value of the silage of corn intercropped with palisade grass (Urochloa brizantha 'Marandu') or guinea grass (Megathyrsus maximus 'Tanzânia') with those of ...
QUALITY OF CORN SILAGE INTERCROPPED WITH TROPICAL GRASSES AT DIFFERENT ROW SPACING
(Inst Zootecnia, 2017-01-01)
The search for pasture alternatives in livestock farming has focused on options that maximize soil use without exhausting its chemical and physical qualities. Integrated crop-livestock systems (SIPA in the Portuguese ...
Production, nutrient cycling and soil compaction to grazing of grass companion cropping with corn and soybean
Agricultural management systems are needed to simultaneously enhance production, promote plant diversity, improve nutrient cycling and reduce soil compaction. We investigated the effects of intercropped forage grass on ...
Effects of Lactobacillus buchneri NCIMB 40788 and forage: Concentrate ratio on the growth performance of finishing feedlot lambs fed maize silage
Inoculation of maize silage with Lactobacillus buchneri has improved livestock production in some cases, but the published literature has shown that results depend on the dietary forage: concentrate (F:C) ratio; however, ...
Fermentation and aerobic stability of rehydrated corn grain silage treated with different doses of Lactobacillus buchneri or a combination of Lactobacillus plantarum and Pediococcus acidilactici
We investigated the effects of different types and doses of inoculants for ensiling rehydrated corn grain. Shelled corn was finely ground and rehydrated to 35% moisture. Treatments were as follows: (1) control (no additives); ...
Avaliação da silagem de milho das variedades granífera e forrageira no desempenho de bovinos das raças nelore e cachim em regime de confinamento
The experiment was carried out to evaluate corn grain and corn forage varieties productivity and nutritive value for silage comparing to the performance of Nellore and Canchim cattle in a feedlot. A completely randomized ...
Effects of homolactic bacterial inoculant on the performance of lactating dairy cows
(Elsevier B.V., 2018-06-01)
The objective of this experiment was to determine the effect of applying a homofermentative bacterial inoculant to corn silage on the performance of dairy cows. After harvesting, corn forage was treated with nothing (CON) ...
Short communicaton. Effects of adding different protein and carbohydrates sources on chemical composition and in vitro gas production of corn stover silage
