Abstract

Experimental tower silos of 0·75 ton capacity were used in a comparison of five silage treatments: (1) pasture top-dressed with 65 lb N per acre, harvested by cutter-bar
and ensiled without molasses; (2) as for silage treatment 1, but ensiled with the addition of molasses at the rate of 40 lb per ton of green matter; (3) pasture from an unfertilized
area, harvested by cutter-bar and ensiled without molasses; (4) pasture top-dressed with 65 lb N per ac, harvested by flail and ensiled without molasses; and (5) as for silage
treatment 4, but ensiled with the addition of molasses at the rate of 40 lb per ton of green matter.
