Report of an experiment to evaluate effect of rations with higher levels of maize silage on performance of beef cattle.

Maize silage is widely regarded as ideal forage for finishing beef cattle. There has been minimal work carried out in the UK on the replacement of cereals with maize silage on barley beef systems. The objective of the experiment at Harper Adams was to evaluate rations with higher levels of maize silage and involved two feeding treatments with rations formulated to contain either 50% or 75% maize silage.
