Dairy cows need a minimum of 30% fibre (NDF) to maintain a healthy rumen. Beef cattle can thrive with much lower levels of fibre in the diet. The fibre content of grass is defined by the neutral detergent fibre content (NDF %). The NDF content of grazed grass varies from 35% for leafy fresh spring grass to 50% for stemmy grass. ...
Dry matter yield is the most important factor affecting cost per tonne of silage fed. First cut silage tends to be Cless expensive than subsequent cuts. The relative cost of baled silage depends on DM yield -lighter crops make bales a more viable option. On a feed cost per ha basis, well-managed grass-plus-silage systems compare favourably with

digestive system. The transition phase (period covering the move from the pre-ruminant to the ruminant phase) occurs between four and eight weeks of age, when the rumen begins to take over the main digestion of feed. When a calf consumes water and starter concentrates, bacterial fermentation is initiated in the rumen. This generates large amounts
