Low phosphorus content and low protein content of pastures usually go hand in hand and as most dry feed is deficient in both of these important nutritional needs, it is easy to understand why our Kimberley cattle do well in the "wet" when ample green feed is available, but fall away rapidly in condition as the feed dries out. Increasing the protein content is essentially a long-term project, but I feel that the remedying of phosphorus deficiency is an economic possibility, which could be put into effect fairly rapidly.

*Ongoing serial, publication reviews. Original title: "More beef from the Kimberleys". This has been augmented as "part 2" for clarity.
