Abstract

The aims of this project were to investigate the phosphorus and mineral requirements of cattle browsing tagasaste when phosphorous was supplied either in a mineral lick or as additional SP applied around the plants. One hundred and forty-two heifers (mean initial live-weight 210 + SD 22.6 kg) from the Pilbara in WA were randomly allocated to five treatments by three replicates. The trial was located on a commercial farm on sandplain country at Lancelin, 150 km north of Perth.
