The unique type and concentration of condensed tannins in BFT increase ruminant production. The hypothesis of this study was that the ADG of cattle grazing monoculture BFT would be greater than that of cattle grazing cicer milkvetch (CMV; Astragalus cicer L.), a nonbloating forage legume that does… CONTINUE READING
