An analysis of cattle live-weight changes on tropical grass pasture during the dry and early wet seasons in northern Australia: 2. Relations to trends in the pasture, diet and grazing behaviour
Journal of Agricultural Science
Cattle grazing buffel grass pastures during the dry season at Katherine lose large amounts of live weight during a short period following first rain. In Part 1 we showed that these losses were due mainly to reduction in gut contents. Part 2 examines the changes in pasture, diet and grazing behaviour to assess the probable change in nutritional status of cattle following rain. During the dry season the most valuable pasture component, green leaf, was very scarce and had a nitrogen concentrationdoi:10.1017/s0021859600036327 fatcat:ahlocpp6gfdr5e5g2njjafuuwe
