    Impact of cultivation method on productivity and botanical composition of a kikuyu–ryegrass pasture

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Kikuyu (Pennisetum clandestinum)–ryegrass (Lolium spp.) cultivated pastures form the base for dairy production in the southern Cape region of South Africa. The impact of various methods and implements used to over-sow ryegrass on the productivity and botanical composition of the...
  3. Seasonal dry matter production, botanical composition and forage quality of kikuyu over-sown with annual or perennial ryegrass

    Seasonal dry matter production, botanical composition and forage quality of kikuyu over-sown with annual or perennial ryegrass

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The seasonal growth and low forage quality of kikuyu restrict milk production. The aim of this study was to determine the yield and nutritional value of irrigated kikuyu over-sown with perennial, Italian or Westerwolds ryegrass grazed by dairy cows. The...
  4. Southern African pasture and forage science entering the 21st century: past to present

    Southern African pasture and forage science entering the 21st century: past to present

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Given the global challenges of mitigating and alleviating land degradation and ensuring food security, particularly through protein production, pasture and forage science together with rangeland science will remain imperative to sustainable livestock production systems. Recognising the scientific principles developed in...
  5. Forage yield and quality response of annual ryegrass (<em>Lolium multiflorum</em>) to different water and nitrogen levels

    Forage yield and quality response of annual ryegrass (<em>Lolium multiflorum</em>) to different water and nitrogen levels

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Water and nitrogen shortages in annual ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) production can be improved by using proper irrigation and nitrogen scheduling methods. The aim of this research was to analyse the effect of water and nitrogen application on dry matter production...
  6. Effect of energy sources on the milk production and reproduction of lactating Holstein cows

    Effect of energy sources on the milk production and reproduction of lactating Holstein cows

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal
    The objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of energy sources on milk production and reproduction of dairy cows on a pasture-based feeding system. Following parturition, 201 Holstein cows from the Elsenburg herd were fed ad libitum cultivated...
