Abstract

Native pastures in the dry tropics rapidly decline in digestibility and N content with the onset of the dry season. N supplementation is offered as a management strategy to overcome the dry season nutritional deficit. This deficit occurs despite an abundance of dry standing pasture and one of the susceptible groups of cattle is lactating cows.
