Bermuda grass is an energy-rich herbaceous plant suitable for maintenance rations and especially recommended for sheep, horses and replacement heifers.
It is an ideal product for a diet in which energy input is required.
- In the same vegetative state as legumes it is richer in energy because it has fewer woody stems and is poorer in soluble carbohydrates.
- Lower protein content: protoplasmic components are poorer in nitrogen than legumes.
It is also ideal for high-production dairy cow diets.
