The results are understandable as digestibility in moringa silage is higher than elephant grass

The nutrient content of Moringa is higher than Elephant grass, therefore the yield should have increased. The study may be revised with different permutation combination.

We did number of works with Moringa Oleifera in dairy cattle feeding. Moringa can be replaced upto 75% of the total concentrate supplied in dairy cattle ration. Milk PUFAs also increased and overall quality of milk is increased.
