Abstract
The fattening of stall fed steers on zero grazed elephant grass (Pennisetum purpurellm) and other crops has been practised in southern Malawi since 1957, when a scheme was started by the Department of Agriculture to increase the local production of high grade beef (Royle, 1961). It was also designed to utilize crop residues and provide manure for the maintenance of soil fertility on very small farms. A preliminary report on the results of the stallfeeding Scheme which has expanded to nearly 900 animals per year, has been published by Frank (1971).
