Abstract

A team of extension livestock specialists and county extension workers collected 362 forage samples from cooperating producers in 55 Iowa Counties. Summaries of the three forage types showed normal feed analysis for energy and protein. Micro minerals were also analyzed with 11% of samples being below National Research Council 1984 selenium and zinc requirements for beef.
