Body mass gains of beef cattle grazing heavily-fertilized irrigated grasses

Body mass gains of beef cattle grazing heavily-fertilized irrigated grasses

Annual Report, Division of Livestock and Pastures, 1974-75: 125-128

In trials at (a) Henderson Research Station and (b) Grasslands Research Station, irrigated (c) Cynodon aethiopicus No. 2 and (d) Paspalum notatum Paraguay were rotationally grazed at both sites and in addition (e) Panicum repens was grazed at (a). 650 kg N/ha was applied in 8 equal dressings at monthly intervals. Liveweight gains at (a) were 57.4 and 103.1, 61.6 and 71.2, and 89.2 and 97.2 kg/head for steers and heifers grazing (c), (d) and (e), respectively.
