How to Produce and Use Sweet Forages
March 4, 2015
via Webinar

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.
