Oxalate toxicity in ruminants fed overgrown napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum)


, : Oxalate toxicity in ruminants fed overgrown napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum). Indian Journal of Animal Nutrition 13(3): 181-183

Two toxicity outbreaks resulting from feeding of overgrown napier grass in cattle and buffaloes were investigated and the results were compared with an experimental study on 4 healthy buffalo calves fed on the same fodder. Similar toxic symptoms, severe inappetence, straining, constipation, dryness of muzzle, dullness, dyspnoea with normal water intake and zero rumen motility were observed in experimental and naturally-affected cattle.

N was applied at 4 levels: 0, 30, 60 and 90 kg/10 per year. The grass showed remarkable increase in the yield with the rate of N up to 60 kg in both years. Little difference was recognized in the yield between the N rates of 60 and 90 kg. The gras...
