Investigations hito the chemical composition and nutritive value of certain forage plants at medium altitudes in the tropics. 3. The digestibility and nutritive value of grass and legume hays and 'standing hays'



Investigations hito the chemical composition and nutritive value of certain forage plants at medium altitudes in the tropics. 3. The digestibility and nutritive value of grass and legume hays and 'standing hays'



J. agric. Sci, 47: Pt. 2, 225-31. bibl. 9



The results are presented of 2 series of digestibility trials. The first series consists of 6 grass hays, cut at different stages of growth, and 2 legume hays cut at the flowering stage. The second series consists of trials using 7 species of grasses at the ' standing hay' stage. Good quality grass hays are obtained from grasses at the flowering stage. More mature grasses yield poor- or very poor-quality hays of low-protein content.
