Title: The effect of the inclusion of an ionophore as a silage additive on silage characteristics
Project Leader: JH Hoon Starting date: Febryary 2007
Partners: Closing date: July 2011
 
Objectives: * Determine the effect of the inclusion of an ionophore on silage characteristics such as pH, lactic acid, volatile fatty acids, ammonia nitrogen, water-soluble carbohydrates, etc.
* Use the results of this study to determine in subsequent growth trials whether it is a viable option to include ionophores in silage diets to improve animal performance.
