Abstract
It has been estimated by Troup [1] in his report on the farming economy and agricultural expansion of the Kenya Highlands, that nearly 2,000,000 acres, which is little less than two-thirds of the total acreage of the mixed farming areas, will remain as natural grassland. It is apparent from this that natural grassland will continue to provide the greater portion of grazing for animal production in these areas. With this in mind, we may well take the advice of Stapledon [2] who, discussing natural grassland in the United Kingdom, stated "we should be on the soundest of sound lines to assume that an animal needs browse and that he knows he does".
