Abstract

Limiting total mixed ration (TMR) availability from 24 to 19 h/d changed the eating patterns of lactating dairy cows. Availability of ad libitum hay also made a significant difference in dry matter intake (DMI) patterns, as shown by the 95% confidence limits in the shaded bands. Rumen pH pattern throughout the day was modified in restricted-fed cows, but ranges in values were similar to those of ad libitum-fed cows. The changes in intake patterns over time indicate that when feeding TMR diets, cows can adjust to the changes in feed availability and access to long hay.
