THERE was a great deal of controversy throughout the summer of Western Australia's 1969-70 drought over the feeding of supplements other than grain to grazing sheep.
This report summarises some of the experiments carried out by this Department to investigate various artificial means of supplementing sheep grazing stubbles and dry summer pastures.
Further details of the experiments can be obtained by contacting the authors.
The results failed to demonstrate economic responses to urea supplements for grazing sheep.
