Abstract

A digestion study was conducted using 18 crossbred wether lambs to evaluate the effects of corn residue harvesting method and ensiling on the digestibility of corn residue. Husks had the greatest digestibility compared to any of the harvesting methods. No differences were observed for the digestibility of husklage, ensiled husklage, or stalklage. None of the harvest methods resulted in residue digestibilities similar to husks.
