Results of this trial with high-moisture milo and barley were similar to previous studies with carn—all can satisfactorily replace a major portion of a concentrate mix in a dairy ration on an equal dry matter basis. However, it takes from 20 to 30 per cent more high-moisture grain than dry grain to obtain equal dry matter intake and, subsequently, equal milk production.
