Two experimental strains of tall fescue grass (Festuca arundinacea Schreb) that had previously been shown to produce differences in animal performance during the summer period were fed to Holstein calves in temperature controlled rooms. In the first year, GI-306 (less toxic) and GI-307 (more toxic) tall fescues were fed during July in rooms maintained at 10 to 13, 21 to 23 and 34 to 35 C. In the second year, the same tall fescues and orchardgrass were fed at a high temperature during May (32 to… CONTINUE READING
