Silage Production
and Utilisation

edited by R.S. Park
and M.D. Stronge

Silage Production and Utilisation is for those involved in forage conservation and provides a fascinating insight into current practices and the science underpinning forage conservation.

Key subject areas include opportunities to enhance the fermentation process through crop manipulation prior to ensiling and the use of bacterial additives applied during ensiling. Latest developments in techniques for chemical and biological characterization of silages are reviewed, including grass silage, alternative forages (whole crop wheat and maize silage) and tropical forages.

Silage Production and Utilisation also focuses on current developments in feeding of beef and dairy cattle with conserved forage with particular emphasis on factors influencing intake, digestion and animal performance.
