Abstract
A 2-year grazing trial was carried out on an equatorial Themeda triandra range grassland in the Rift Valley of Kenya, at 1890 m altitude with a bimodal rainfall of 700 mm p.a., to characterize seasonal changes in the pasture and to determine the influence of climatic and management factors on forage availability and composition, grazing selection and live-weight gains on Boran steers (Bos indicus).
