Webinar - The role of forages as a protein source in dairy systems
Increased volatility in prices and availability of soya and other protein sources has increased the importance of providing more protein from home-grown forages in diets of dairy cows. Listen back to this EuroDairy webinar where Elisabet Nadeau discusses the role of forages as a protein source in dairy systems. During this webinar Elisabet covers effects of forage species, the rate of nitrogen fertiliser, wilting, conservation and the use of additives on forage protein and the effects on dairy cow performance. Elisabet also presents the strategy that the EuroDairy pilot farmer, Per Larsson, uses for utilisation of forages as an efficient protein source for his organic dairy herd.
