Abstract

It is important to have accurate data on the amounts and nutritive values of residues, especially for grazing situations. Ten plants were harvested for each field replication. Statistical analysis suggests 6 to 10 plants are needed to obtain accurate grain yields and accurate amounts of residue. Further laboratory analysis of the leaves and husks suggests that the energy and protein contents of the residue that is consumed is less than previously reported.
