During the first grazing year, a Ladino clover-bluegrass mixture was more productive in terms of carrying capacity, gain per acre, and TDN consumption per acre than an Italian birdsfoot trefoil-bluegrass mixture. The trefoil mixture was more productive the remaining two years of the test. Ladino clover was eliminated from the mixture by drouth. Continuous grazing killed the birdsfoot trefoil. The trefoil remained in the mixture when grazed with a rotation system of about two weeks grazing and four weeks rest.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
