Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of the addition of 0.5% urea or 0.5% urea plus 4% (w/w) molasses into corn varieties (Rx-947, 33-94, Frassino, and Arifjye) harvested at the early-milk stage on silage quality, in vitro digestibility and digestible dry matter (DM) yield.
