The effect of restricted access to Leucaena leucocephala on liveweight gain in animals grazing African star grass (Cynodon plectostachyus. K. Scherm)



The effect of restricted access to Leucaena leucocephala on liveweight gain in animals grazing African star grass (Cynodon plectostachyus. K. Scherm)



Tropical Animal Production 5(3): 294



The response to restricted access to Leucaena leucocephala was estimated in a 252-day trial at Cardenas, Mexico. The treatments were 0, 2, 4 or 6 h daily grazing Leucaena with the remaining time spent grazing African star grass (C. plectostachyus). There were 4 paddocks (each 1 ha) of star grass and 3 compact areas of Leucaena (9000 m2). These were grazed by 20 weaned calves (Zebu X Holstein and Zebu X Swiss) with an average weight of 115 kg.
