AbstractEsophageal fistula samples of tropical forage contained 66.4% more crude protein and 7.7% less crude fiber than the average figure for the clipped pasture forage. The percentage crude protein of herbage leaves was approximately 55% higher and the percentage crude fiber was approximately 17% lower than the whole plant.
