Ladino clover Oregon sown broadcast at 5000 g/ha in autumn 1965 was cut at various stages in 1966 and 1967, chopped into 2-cm pieces and fed to rabbits. As plants matured in spring, CF and lignin contents increased but CP content fell markedly; K content also fell slightly. Ca content declined by 0-26 percentage units/day from the early vegetative to the early flowering stage but TDN content hardly changed.
