Palatability of the main fodder and pasture species present in S.E. Spain: II. Herbaceous species


, : Palatability of the main fodder and pasture species present in S.E. Spain: II. Herbaceous species. Proceedings of the XVI International Grassland Congress, 4-11 October 1989, Nice, France: 1533-1534

In the cultivated areas of SE Spain, there are many herbaceous species growing as weeds which could provide supplementary feed for livestock. As a first step to select weed species with fodder interest, the palatability of 65 spontaneous species was studied in stall-feeding experiments where sheep had free access to different lots of species of the following families: Brassicaceae (15 spp.), Asteraceae (11), Chenopodiaceae (9), Poaceae (9), Amaranthaceae (4), and other families (17).

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....
