In the present study increasing geometric mean feed particle size up to 9,900 [micro]m of TMR increased DMI in dairy cattle in early to mid-lactation, but the pattern of the relationship was quadratic, meaning that a geometric mean feed particle size of more than 9,900 in the ration will reduce DMI.
