How to Produce and Use Sweet Forages
March 4, 2015
Sugars, also known as non-structural carbohydrates (NSC), are an
important source of readily available energy in forages. Increasing
forage NSC has been shown to improve feed intake, milk yield, and
nitrogen use efficiency in beef and dairy cows, and other ruminants.
Scientists from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and Université Laval
carried out various studies looking at increasing NSC in forages,
including taking advantage of diurnal variations in NSC. Join this free webinar, co-hosted by the BCRC, the Dairy Research
Cluster and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, to learn how to produce
and use high NSC forages.
