Trace elements in grasses and legumes in relation to cow requirements

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingConference abstract in proceedingsResearch

Trace elements are usually allocated as inorganic supplements in dairy cow feeding to avoid deficiency. To increase self-sufficiency ofmicronutrients on farms, knowledge and choice of plant species could help to improve and balance the mineral status of cow diets. Effects of grassland species on micronutrient profiles were studied during the season. Species were examined while growing in binary grass-legume mixtures. A range of herbage micronutrient contents is presented here, and discussed in relation to dairy cattle requirements and feeding.
