Abstract

The daily consumption of high-moisture alfalfa wafers, with or without forced-air drying, averaged 31/2 Ibs per cow more than baled hay in a recent trial at Davis. There was no significant difference in milk production between conventionally stored wafers and baled hay, but on aerated wafers FCM (4% fat-corrected milk) was increased 2 Ibs per cow daily.
