Abstract

The availability of oxalate and non-oxalate calcium in alfalfa was determined using a chick assay. Oxalate-bound calcium was found to contribute only 16% as much influence as nonoxalate calcium. The nonoxalate calcium in alfalfa was 18% more available than calcium carbonate (precipitated chalk).; Dairy Day, 1984, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS, 1984;
