AbstractFull Text

In this project plant and vegetation preferences of two Norwegian dairy cattle breeds with different selection history were studied. The Norwegian dairy breed Blacksided Trønder and Nordland Cattle (STN) has never been selected efficiently for higher milk production. The other breed, however, the...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to investigate if the foraging behaviour of naïve calves turned out to pasture was more effective, and losses in liveweight thereby diminished, when the calves were accompanied by grazing-experienced cattle. Twenty-six first-season-grazing dairy calves were turned out to...

AbstractFull Text

Round bale grass silage harvested early (D-value 757 g kg-1 DM) or at a normal (D-value 696 g kg-1 DM) time was used to study the effect of harvesting time, chop length and their interaction on chewing activity and digestibility by dairy cows. Six early lactating Norwegian Red cows were used in a...

AbstractFull Text

An organic crop rotation system designed for supplying all feed to a herd of dairy cattle was run during 1993-2006 in Central Norway. During the second course of rotation (2003-2006) the yields of forage (two years with ley) and grain crops (barley and oats with peas) from the system were estimated ...

AbstractFull Text

This study focuses on alpine outfields and summer farms in Norway. The main objective is to investigate relationships among vegetation composition, grazing preferences and quality of dairy products. A broad range of methods to document cattle area use and grazing preferences are used. The study...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of the NorFor structure system was to establish a model for prediction of eating-(EI), ruminating-(RI) and total chewing index (CI) for feeds and total rations fed to dairy cows. The model was predicted from a Meta analysis of more than 100 published experiments including results on...

AbstractFull Text

Round bale grass silage harvested at early (D-value 757 g kg-1 DM) or normal (D-value 696 g kg-1 DM) time, direct cut or wilted, was used to study effect of harvesting time and wilting on digestibility of main nutrients. Fermentation quality was good in all 4 silages. Silages were fed ad libitum to ...

AbstractFull Text

Twelve cows were used in a cyclic change-over experiment to examine the effects of harvest time of red clover silage on milk production and composition. Dietary treatments consisted of four red clover silages harvested from primary growths of early and late cut red clover sward and their regrowths, ...

AbstractFull Text

Grazing of high-producing large dairy herds is increasingly under pressure in Europe. Due to increasing farm size, fewer enterprises possess enough land around the farm buildings to offer sufficient grazing. This limits access to the numerous beneficial effects of grazing which include improved...
