Abstract
The UNDP/FAO Kenya. Beef' Industry Development Project has initiated and aided the establishment, of a commercial beef' cattle finishing sector in the Kenya agriculture. The feeding systems developed utilize surplus cattle from rural areas which are fed on rations based on maize silage Consequently the project initiated a search for forage crops suitable for cultivation under highland conditions, but more drought-resistant than the presently used maize It appeared that new introductions of cold-tolerant sorghums from the high-altitude areas of Uganda and Ethiopia produced consistently good yields which were comparable to, or better than, maize.
