Mineral and feeding stuff analyses of grasses of the Eastern Transvaal highveld



Mineral and feeding stuff analyses of grasses of the Eastern Transvaal highveld



16th Rept. Director Vet. Services and Animal Industry, South Africa. 421-433



The grasses of Ermelo in the Eastern Transvaal are poorer throughout the year in crude protein and ether extract than grasses of Bechuanaland. In spite of the higher rainfall in the former locality, the fibre content is high. The grasses studied are poor in calcium and the Ca: Mg ratio is narrow. The ratio of K: Na is very wide, the potassium content reaching European figures while the sodium is low. Sodium content is not constant and does not show a definite fluctuation through the season.
