Abstract

This research considers the effects of feedstuff processing (drying, fractionation and particle size) on the resultant fermentation characteristics of the feed. The effect of drying was investigated using fresh perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) or samples that had been microwave, freeze or oven dried. Methods of drying had no effect on dry matter (DM) loss, gas and volatile fatty acid (VFA) production profiles, although fresh grass produced significantly less gas (P
