Nutritive value of warm-season grass hays for beef cattle and sheep; digestibility, intake and mineral utilization



Nutritive value of warm-season grass hays for beef cattle and sheep; digestibility, intake and mineral utilization



Journal of Animal Science 59(6): 1582-1593



Intake, digestibility and mineral balance trials were made with 2 warm-season grasses, switchgrass and big bluestem, harvested at different cutting dates in 2 years. The hays were fed freely to mature beef cows and mature wether sheep and intake and digestibilities of DM, neutral detergent fibre (NDF) and protein were estimated.
