Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture and Animal Husbandry 13(65): 625-629
For part 2 see NAR 44, 1313. 3. The effect of supplement of 35 or 70 g P/week on the Ca and P contents of bone and hair was studied in bullocks grazing carpet grass (Axonopus affinis) pasture of low P content in New South Wales. The supplements did not affect plasma inorganic P. P in hair was not affected by dietary P or season. Ca in hair was not influenced by pasture Ca but was most in summer and least in winter.
