Intake of African stargrass (Cynodon plectostachyus) and leucaena (Leucaena leucocephala) in a silvopastoral system



Intake of African stargrass (Cynodon plectostachyus) and leucaena (Leucaena leucocephala) in a silvopastoral system



Pasturas Tropicales 22(1): 26-30



In El Hatico nature reserve, located in the Department of Valle del Cauca, Colombia, the voluntary consumption of DM by cattle was evaluated over 1 year in a silvopastoral system consisting of Cynodon plectostachyus/Leucaena leucocephala and Cynodon/Prosopis juliflora. The digestibility and availability of each forage vs. consumption were submitted to multiple regression analysis, and the effect of adding molasses was compared.
