Project No: AP6/2
|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.
