  1. Prediction of the chemical composition of winter grain and maize with near infrared reflectance spectroscopy

    Prediction of the chemical composition of winter grain and maize with near infrared reflectance spectroscopy

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) was evaluated as a tool for the fast and inexpensive prediction of nutritional values of feedstuffs. NIRS calibrations were developed for winter grain samples collected over three years in the Western Cape region of South...
  2. Differences in the chemical composition and digestibility of cereal hay and straw produced in a Mediterranean rainfall area of South Africa

    Differences in the chemical composition and digestibility of cereal hay and straw produced in a Mediterranean rainfall area of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Chemical composition and digestibility values were obtained to provide a database for accurate values of hay and straw types produced in the Western Cape area of South Africa. Straw and hay samples were collected from 10 different localities in the...

  4. Seasonal influence on diet selection of sheep grazing a weedy dryland lucerne pasture

    Seasonal influence on diet selection of sheep grazing a weedy dryland lucerne pasture

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The experiment was conducted to determine the seasonal effects on the availability, chemical composition and digestibility of a grazing dry-land lucerne pasture, as measured on samples either collected by hand or with oesophageally fistulated (OF) sheep. The pasture was monitored...
  5. Estimation of grazing by herbivores from analysis of dung

    Estimation of grazing by herbivores from analysis of dung

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Two phenolic acids, p-coumaric and ferulic acid, can be liberated from grass material by mild alkaline hydrolysis and resolved by thin layer chromatography (TLC). The two acids can also be recovered from the dung of various herbivores and their presence...
  6. A comparison of pod and seed characteristics, nutritive value, digestibility and seed survival in cultivars from different <em>Medicago</em> species fed to sheep

    A comparison of pod and seed characteristics, nutritive value, digestibility and seed survival in cultivars from different <em>Medicago</em> species fed to sheep

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    This study was conducted to compare pod and seed characteristics, nutritive value, digestibility and seed survival of intact medic pods after ingestion by sheep. Different diets comprising the intact pods of six cultivars of the medic species that are most...
  7. Antioxidant activity of selected plants of the Great Fish River Reserve,Eastern Cape, South Africa

    Antioxidant activity of selected plants of the Great Fish River Reserve,Eastern Cape, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The Great Fish River Reserve (GFRR), in the Eastern Cape, has proved to be particularly suitable for the black rhinoceros that have been introduced over the past 20 years. In captivity, these animals often suffer from a number of disease...
