Abstract

Second generation annual legumes, such as arrowleaf clover (AC; Trifolium vesiculosum Savi), bladder clover (BC; T.spumosum L.) and biserrula (B; Biserrula pelecinus L.) can maintain quality and high biomass production for extended periods (Hackney et al. 2013), so should support higher liveweight gain (LWG) than traditional species such as subterranean clover. However, studies comparing lamb growth rates of these legumes to traditional legumes are limited.The aim of the experiment was to assess the growth rates of lambs grazing pastures of AC (cv. Arrotas), BC (cv. Bartolo)and B (cv. Casbah) compared to lucerne (L; cv. SARDI 10).
