The project will evaluate the benefits, in terms of milk protein yield and Nitrogen Use Efficiency (NUE, = milk N output / N intake) of lowering the concentration of crude protein and optimising the profile of metabolisable amino acids in diets for lactating dairy cows. While evidence to support this strategy already exists, there is a dearth of data relevant to diets based on extensively fermented grass silage.
