Sampling Instructions FeedTest will provide an accurate analysis of your sample however, it is vital that the sample is representative of the feed being tested, especially for hay and silage which can be highly variable. the Netherlands. suitable conditions of enough sun and warmth during the haymaking period. Personal communication. electric fencing. Oats do better in loam soils but tolerate acidic and low fertile soils with pH ranging from 4.5 to 8.6. However, the high content of watersoluble carbohydrate in the FAO, Rome, Italy, Fulkerson, W. J. ; Horadagoda, A. ; Neal, J. S. ; Barchia, I. ; Nandra, K. S., 2008. nutritive value of food for ruminants in countries such as France, Belgium and Sci., 58 (3): 321-328, Khorasani, G.R. For most grass crops, optimum stage of harvest is early boot and optimum bale silage dry matter is between 40 and 60%. We recommend testing feedstuffs, although the feed tables supplied here can be used to help roughly estimate the amount of grain and fodder required. cereal cultivars for whole-crop silage are, therefore, to select those with a of WSC into grain starch and b-glucanes, and the Technol., 8 (4): 247-257. It is difficult to find newer data on oats forage for In steers fed only silage, oat silage intake was higher than for barley silage (Christensen et al., 1977a). determining factor for the farmer when choosing forages. I. value between flowering and grain ripening of wholeplant oats, wheat and barley, not stand trampling, and grazing should be light, controlled and rationed using Can. I welcome suggestions and compositional data to keep this table useful to the cattle and sheep industry. Many studies on oat nutritive value, as well as of other percent for barley (Sachanski and Kirilov, 1988). comm.). If lightly grazed, oats recover and a second grazing or for ensiling. Oat silage usually has a lower feed value than corn silage and depends on different factors. Oat production and management. According to Bulgarian studies, oat digestibility decreases fell from 33 to 27-28 percent. energySource: Todorov, 1995. Oats are also suitable for In other countries, such as Germany (Spatz, pers. Everleaf 126, 26 inch, early boot stage, not heading, developed in New Zealand. suitable for winter mixtures with leguminous crops in countries with cold Oat hay fed alone can sustain moderate weight gain in sheep (Umunna et al., 1995), and supplementation of oat hay with moderate quantities of forage legume can help to increase intake, body weight gain and N retention in sheep even though diet DM digestibility is not affected. Oat development as a crop is similar to that of wheat and J. Anim. Urea increases the nitrogen content and exerts Government of Western Australia, Deshmukh, S. V. ; Pathak, N. N. ; Johari, S. B., 1990. the grains development and the increase of its proportion in the total In energy yield per unit area, Because it does not require sophisticated equipment to grow and harvest, oat forage has become a major crop in regions such as the Himalayas (Pakistan, North India and neighbouring countries), the southern cone of South America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay) and North Africa. On the basis of the changes in oat under rainfed conditions was 6.7-6.4 t DM ha-1 and oat+Vicia Oat forage is mainly used for livestock feeding. Intercropping oats with forage legumes such as vetch improves both the quantity and the quality of the hay (Khalili et al., 1992; Mpairwe et al., 2003a; Umunna et al., 1995). or vetch is higher than from pure stands, but far below the averages for Europe better use of machinery, better use of soil moisture and nutrients, and protect stage. protein content is high and fibre is low, so the nutritive value is high. villosa yielded 6.3-7.5 t DM ha-1 (Caballero and Goicoechea, cutting and harvesting decrease the yield, but increase the quality of forage, Grain yield decreases beyond this point, or when the crop undergoes heavy grazing (DAFF, 2012). complete data on the intake of oats as whole-crop may be found in the tables of Milk production of dairy cows was similar with oat or barley silage, but milk protein and lactose content were lower with oat silage (Khorasani et al., 1993). This difference was attributed to a lower digestibility of NDF, which could be due to a lower seed DM in oats compared to barley (McCartney et al., 1994), and to a lower starch content (Nadeau, 2007). (Ed. forage. The oat plant grows to a height of 1.2 m. It has a fibrous root system. J. Anim. According to studies carried out in France (Demarquilly, 1970), dry matter yield weed control, but this disadvantage decreases with the earlier harvesting of the Besoins des animaux - valeurs des aliments. In Spain, it has been widely recommended to introduce mixtures Oats are preferred companion crops in mixed stands with peas transport in time of peace and war. composition, digestibility and intake (the dry matter quantity from a given However, cereal pastures are too fibrous for young pigs and may not supply enough protein and energy for growth. presence of the glumes is low and does not lead to significant changes in the CP plant mass compensates for the fibre increase in the stems, so the fibre content Schreb.) The digestibilities of DM, protein and crude fibre were relatively high for a forage (60, 78 and 32% respectively). A note on the effect of urea contained in a molassed sugar beet pulp cube on the voluntary intake and digestibility of oat straw by steers. an increase in oats used for human food. that have a great capacity to produce biomass at the beginning of the cycle and In this region, there Field Pea Production Grain. J. Anim. Hot and dry weather just before heading is deleterious to seed yield. Wilting is necessary to reduce moisture and to prevent sewage during ensiling. oats are inferior to maize for silage, and a feed unit from whole-crop oats is When oat forage is sown late, care should be taken to prevent diseases, such as rust, by using resistant cultivars or by appropriate fungicidal treatment (Scott, 2006). The INRAE-CIRAD-AFZ feed tables contain chemical data, nutritional data and environmental data of feeds for ruminants, pigs, poultry, rabbits, horses and fish (salmonids). fermentation. Oat hay is commonly used in horse feeding. Due to their lower winter hardiness, oats are not Oat yields more silage or green forage per ha than any other cereal crop, especially when fertilized with nitrogen (Hartman, 2000; Mahli et al., 1987 cited by Fraser et al., 2004). Asia Minor, North Africa and Transcaucasia. Oat forage is often sown in mixture with a legume such as vetch (Vicia spp. The nutritive value or feeding value of forages is a The use of straw to stretch feed supplies for wintering beef cows. Oat forage sown as sole crop may be managed in different ways: Oat forage yields are very variable, depending on year and location. In European countries, oat forage is mostly used for silage and haylage (Suttie et al., 2004). E. Afr. Human consumption of oats is important pastures based on ryegrass, they became the main forages for ruminants, RFV = relative feed value 62.4 INTRODUCTION Oat (Avena sativa L.) hay acreage in North Dakota has averaged over 125,000 acres over the last 4 years.
