The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effects of site
potential, season and plant part on percent crude protein, percent
digestibility of dry matter and yield of cereal residues. Three cereal
types, club wheat (Triticum aestivum) tall, bearded wheat (T.
aestivum), and barley Hordeum vulgare) were examined.
Grazing on the mountainous forested ranges of the Camp Creek
Unit, Malhuer National Forest, was typified by irregular distribution
of free-ranging cattle. A combination of management and physical,
topographic constraints caused cattle to concentrate on the riparian
zone early in the grazing season in 1977 and 1978. A large percentage...
Paraquat (1,11-dimethy1-4,4'-bipyridinium ion) and glyphosate [N (phosphonomethyl)glycine] are herbicides utilized for chemical seedbed preparation in the establishment of grass and legume seed crops. When these herbicides are applied after seeding the crop, seeds which are not protected by a layer of soil could be exposed to the herbicide. Effects of...
Bioavailability (BA) of vitamin B6 (B-6) from foods may be
limited. The knowledge of the BA of B6 from food is important in
that this would help to understand if the B6 present in the diet of
individuals will meet the requirements for this vitamin.

The objectives of this study were: 1) to identify and map the
experimental area of Meadow Creek watershed by existing vegetation,
and 2) to identify and map the experimental area of Meadow Creek
watershed by habitat types. The classification system adopted for
this study was based on the habitat type...
A study was conducted over a two year period, 1973 through
1974, on perennial ryegrass-subclover pastures with stocking rates
of 7.4 (moderate), 9. 9 (heavy), and 12.4 (overstocked) ewes per
hectare to establish guidelines on stocking intensity for dryland
improved pastures in western Oregon. Climatic conditions varied
annually and caused...
