Abstract


The temporary pastures cultivated in hill regions generate, beside a big dry matter yield, a special forage quality as well. In this direction, the researches performed show that in the temporary pastures consisted of a complex structure of perennial gramineae and red clover in different proportions, forage quality is determined by the following indices: the ratio Ca/P ranges between 2.06 and 4.20, the ratio K/Ca + Mg has values below 2.2, the Mg content is between 0.35 and 0.55%, the digestibility between 70.10-75.42% and the amount of crude protein between 1203 and 1340 kg/ha.
