The mineral content of Caribbean feeding stuffs
C. Devendra
The macro-mineral compositions of about 200 randomly elected representative samples of feedingstuffs, including 101 grasses, in the Caribbean, are reported. The calcium and phosphorus contents of the grasses were generally low and inadequate for dairy cattle but probably adequate for beef cattle. The magnesium content was adequate for all classes of livestock.
