• additives
  • If management requirements are not met, or to improve silage quality, additives are often used. (mdpi.com)
  • Aerobic reheating of silage was also successfully inhibited through biological additives and high density. (mdpi.com)

  • wheat
  • Maize has become a staple food in many parts of the world, with total production surpassing that of wheat or rice. (wikipedia.org)
  • Spanish settlers far preferred wheat bread to maize, cassava, or potatoes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Maize flour could not be substituted for wheat for communion bread, since in Christian belief only wheat could undergo transubstantiation and be transformed into the body of Christ. (wikipedia.org)
  • forages
  • Also we will continue to assist farmers with different services (LG LAB portable NIRS, decision support tool to predict maize silage harvest date) to help them to produce good quality forages and while remaining competitive. (dairyglobal.net)
  • Maize silage is one of the most valuable forages for ruminants. (wikipedia.org)
  • additive
  • The findings show that the chemical additive very effectively prevented silage from reheating and deteriorating. (mdpi.com)
  • meal
  • There were no significant interactions between length of wilting and the incorporation of maize meal. (koreascience.or.kr)
  • In addition, the maize meal increased DMD. (koreascience.or.kr)
  • It was concluded that maize meal should generally be incorporated at a level of 5% on fresh weight basis. (koreascience.or.kr)
  • With imported dry maize meal reaching €270-290/t delivered on to farms this winter, the possibility of growing your own maize equivalent needs a closer look. (independent.ie)
  • cobs
  • Corn stover consists of the leaves, stalks, and cobs of maize (corn) (Zea mays ssp. (wikipedia.org)
  • Before domestication, maize plants grew only small, 25 millimetres (1 in) long corn cobs, and only one per plant. (wikipedia.org)
  • In Spielvogel's view, many centuries of artificial selection (rather than the current view that maize was exploited by interplanting with teosinte) by the indigenous people of the Americas resulted in the development of maize plants capable of growing several cobs per plant, which were usually several centimetres/inches long each. (wikipedia.org)
  • yield
  • Typically good maize silage will yield 25t/ha, with 30-33pc dry matter (DM), 11.0-11.5 MJ ME/kg DM, 28-30pc starch and 7-9pc crude protein. (independent.ie)
  • When considering growing maize for selling on to other livestock farmers it's essential that it's grown under plastic to ensure that the maximum energy yield is obtained by the user and the maximum fresh tonnes are sold by the grower. (independent.ie)
  • bale
  • Crimped maize can be ensiled in a conventional clamp or in round bale form. (independent.ie)
  • The wrapping may be performed by a bale wrapper, while the baled silage is handled using a bale handler or a front-loader, either impaling the bale on a flap, or by using a special grab. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the UK, baled silage is most often made in round bales about 4 feet by 4 feet, individually wrapped with four to six layers of "bale wrap plastic" (black, white or green 25-micrometre stretch film). (wikipedia.org)
  • America
  • In North America, Australia, northwestern Europe, and frequently in New Zealand, silage is placed in large heaps on the ground and rolled by tractor to push out the air, then wrapped in plastic covers held down by reused tires or tire ring walls. (wikipedia.org)
  • In an alternative method, the cut vegetation is baled, making balage (North America) or silage bales (UK). (wikipedia.org)
  • diet
  • Higher dry matter intake (DMI) and daily weight gains (218 and 250 g/d) were obtained with MSd and molasses treated potato hash silage diet (MPHSd) compared to the other diets. (scielo.org.za)
  • However, compared with the maize silage, the SC increased the initial degradability (3 h after feeding) of forage NDF (4.6% vs. 1.7%), total diet OM (3.1% vs. 1.0%) and crude protein (CP) (5.5% vs. 0.1%) to higher proportions for lucerne hay. (scielo.org.za)
  • Moreover, acetate concentration was increased on the diet based on maize silage and decreased on the diet based on lucerne hay with supplementation of SC. (scielo.org.za)
  • and iv) maize silage-based diet plus SC. (scielo.org.za)
  • made
  • Since then, many improvements have been made in making the maize better, more digestible, more suitable for dry climates and more efficient. (dairyglobal.net)
  • Genetically modified maize made up 85% of the maize planted in the United States in 2009. (wikipedia.org)
  • animal
  • In 1977, our company split the grain maize breeding program from the silage maize breeding program and in 1997, we started the LG Animal Nutrition concept, dedicated to studying maize varieties and their applications and effects for animals. (dairyglobal.net)
  • whole
  • Whole cob processing or ground ear maize (GEM) has been produced on many farms over recent years. (independent.ie)
  • There have been limited but very successful attempts at harvesting whole maize grain and storing it by crimping. (independent.ie)
  • When corn stover is harvested intact (as opposed to the whole plant being chopped for silage, or the stover being left in the field by a combine), it can be cut and gathered by corn binders, which are reaper-binders designed specifically for maize (for example, Video on YouTube). (wikipedia.org)
  • value
  • Predicting the nutritive value of silage. (cambridge.org)
  • Its vital silage is analysed so the relative feeding value of the silage can be worked out and also factor in to account costs need for delivery to farm. (fwi.co.uk)
  • often
  • In this case, the bales are placed tightly end to end on the ground, making a long continuous "sausage" of silage, often at the side of a field. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • The study also demonstrated that the oldest surviving maize types are those of the Mexican highlands. (wikipedia.org)
