Cattlemen's Day, 1983; Report of progress (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station); 427; Beef; Calcium oxalate; Alfalfa; Clovers; Soybean meal; Cottonseed meal

The oxalate crystals are relatively unavailable to animals and could be an important consideration in ration formulation. Extension dairymen presently are discounting total alfalfa calcium by 40 %.
