Palatability of the main fodder and pasture species present in S.E. Spain: I. Woody species (trees and shrubs)


Proceedings of the XVI International Grassland Congress, 4-11 October 1989, Nice, France: 1531-1532
Palatability of the main fodder and pasture species present in S.E. Spain: I. Woody species (trees and shrubs)
In the non-cultivated range areas of SE Spain, native pastures have been degraded by continuous overgrazing and so their contribution to the feed requirement of livestock is very limited, especially during winter, end of spring and end of summer. In a search for new fodder resources to cover the mentioned feeding gaps, 64 woody species (spontaneous and cultivated) were evaluated in stall-feeding palatability experiments where sheep had free access to different lots of species.
