Abstract
Cattle grazing trials were conducted on heavily bushed and lightly bushed areas in Kenya. Diet samples, obtained by the use of oesophageal fistula ted steers, from the heavily bushed area indicated that cattle in overgrazed areas consumed diets containing high levels of crude protein, this coming primarily from leaves and pods of browse plants. Browsing was most common during the dry season; however, in spite of the higher protein diet the gains of livestock were lower in the overgrazed areas than comparable animals in the lightly grazed paddocks.
