We examined the effects of substituting rapeseed meal with blue lupin (Lupinus angustifolius) on production and metabolism of cows fed grass silage-based diets. The results show that dry matter (DM) intake and milk production increase when cereal grain is substituted with blue lupin (BL) but decrease when rapeseed meal (RSM) is replaced with BL. Owing to its high energy and protein content BL is a potential home-grown feed for supplementing forage-based dairy cow diets.
