Fibre Supplementation at Grass

Early season grass is often low in physically effective fibre and high in protein and fast fermentable sugars, leading to fast rumen throughput.  To improve feed efficiency, fibre supplementation should be considered.

This Farming Note covers:

  • The different types of fibre
  • Their roles in the diet
  • How fibre sources can practically be added to a grazing diet
  • Alkali-treatment of straw

Issued April 2016.
