Abstract
The composition and nutritive value of oat grain, straw, hay, and the green crop cut at the milky stage of growth for ensilage can be found in most authoritative textbooks on livestock feeding. Similar information on young green oats grown for forage can rarely be found in the literature, presumably because it has not been common practice elsewhere to utilize the cereal in this way [1]. It is a method, nevertheless, which is favoured in certain districts of Kenya and, if only from a parochial standpoint, information on green oats requires to be extended to include its composition under grazing conditions.
