The diet of domestic ruminants (cattle, sheep and goats) on sahelian and sudano-sahelian ranges. II. Dietary description trial based on a study of feeding behaviour. Varying factors in food choice and nutritional consequences



Revue d' Elevage et de Medecine Veterinaire des Pays Tropicaux 41(4): 427-440



In studies at 2 sites in N. Senegal in 1981-83, the quality and quantity of the herbaceous layer were described, trees and shrubs were identified and their population density estimated. Diet selection by cattle, sheep and goats was assessed by close observation during the principal feeding periods by shepherds. DM production was greater (2.0 t/ha) at Doli than at Vindou Tiengoli (0.6 t/ha).
