Abstract
Parts of Kenya, like many other regions of Africa, are deficient in a number of the mineral elements essential in animal nutrition. This was first shown in experiments carried out by workers from the Rowett Research Institute at Molo as long ago as 1927-29 where dairy cows provided with mineral supplements in this area produced heavier calves and gave a considerably increased milk yield, while maintaining better condition than the un supplemented controls, particularly during the dry seasons.
