Diet selection and growth rates of lambs fed second generation legumes or lucerne oversown with forage oats in the winter

Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Pasture legumes can improve the nutritive value of cereal forage and grass swards due to their higher digestibility. Primary photosensitisation (PP) has been reported in sheep grazing biserrula (Kessell et al. 2015), but providing other plant species in the sward may enable animals to reduce negative experiences such as PP through selective grazing. No studies to date have investigated growth rates or diet selection of lambs grazing second generation legume pastures sown with forage oats.

OtherAnimal Production 2018 is the only multi-species animal science conference of its kind in Australia, covering sheep, beef cattle, dairy, pig, goat and poultry industries, as well as emerging animal industries This enables cross-industry learning, as it recognises the value of collaboration and that a problem in one industry may have been addressed in another. This year’s theme, "Fostering Innovation Through The Value Chain", aims to encourage producers, consultants and researchers to be innovative to meet growing market demands.
