Abstract
It has been demonstrated that grazed cows produced more milk, solids-corrected milk (SCM), butterfat, ash and less milk protein than the stall-fed (P<O.05). Grazed cows also consumed more forage DM. Friesian cows produced more milk, less butterfat, SNF, TS and ash than the German Brown. High concentrate-fed cows produced statistically higher TS, ash. Energy and less butterfat than high forage-fed ones (P<O.05). While grazed cows gained more weight than Stan-fed ones. Higher respiratory counts were recorded for the grazed cows than those that were stall-fed.
