It has recently been shown that the performance of growing cattle fed rice straw and para grass improves when the diet is supplemented with cassava foliage (Sath et al.
Thus the aim of the present study was to study mineral metabolism in growing cattle fed rice straw, para grass and cassava foliage.
The cattle were fed rice straw ad libitum and para grass at 1% DM of BW as the basal diet and only the level of cassava foliage differed between the four experimental diets.
No refusals were seen for para grass, which was fed at 1% DM of BW in all treatments.
