Synopsis

Synopsis

Consistent differences in apparent palatability among 20 genotypes of tall fescue were demonstrated by observing the behavior of a number of sheep grazing a replicated small-plot nursery. This observational technique was found to be preferred to clipping a sample of forage before and after grazing and estimating palatability by difference.
