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.
