Intake and digestibility in Hokkaido native horses on woodland pasture



Intake and digestibility in Hokkaido native horses on woodland pasture



Grassland Science 47(2): 204-211



Digestibility and feeding habits were investigated in Hokkaido native horses grazing woodland pastures consisting mainly of Sasa species including S. senanensis, S. kurilensis and S. borealis. Intake was generally greater in summer than in winter and greater in winter without snow than in winter with snow. Digestibilities of neutral detergent fibre and acid detergent fibre in Sasa were higher in summer than in winter but dry matter digestibility did not differ.
