For many ‘high performing’ ruminant diets, providing enough effective fibre to balance high starch levels, without depressing intakes is an all too common

Milking in the region of 270 cows of predominantly Holstein breeding, the enterprise sought an alternative to their dwindling supply of hay, which had
acted as the primary source of long fibre material in the winter ration.
