Traditional pastures


  • Unmanaged traditional grasslands and pasture contain hardly, legume species of forage. The pastures mostly constitute poor quality feeds supplying 2-3% DCP and 50-55% TDN on DM basis.
  • For the optimum utilization of excess energy (TDN) intake by cows and buffaloes through the traditional grasslands it is important to make up the deficiency of protein (DCP) through the feeding of high protein supplements like G.N. cake, till cake, soyabean cake, linseed cake.
  • A non-protein nitrogen (NPN) supplement like urea-molasses supplement or urea mixed concentrate mixture can also be fed in limited quantity for the better utilization of excess energy consumed.
