Mineral balance in sheep grazing cereals – Gordon Refshauge (DPI)
Gordon Refshauge (NSW Department of Primary Industries) takes us through an overview of the need to maintain mineral balance on grazing cereals due to the high K:Na ratio of the forage, in order to avoid metabolic disorders in sheep.
