Abstract
The level of milk production from exotic cows which can be obtained from pasture grasses in the Lake Crescent area of Uganda has not been extensively studied. The milk yield from pasture depends 'On composition and level of intake of the herbage as well as management and environmental factors. Butterworth [I] has compared composition of Uganda and 'Other tropical grasses. Dougall [3] has reviewed composition of Kenya feeds and Long [5] has summarized the nutritive value of Uganda grasses. In relation to temperate zone grasses [II] it is evident that Uganda grasses contain more crude fibre and less crude Protein at any given stage 'Of maturity. This could mean that dairy cows in the Lake Crescent area of Uganda require more supplementary energy 'and ,protein than cows grazing temperate zone grasses in order to maintain the same level of milk *,
