chapter vii hay from natural pasture This is the original source of hay, and is still common in parts of Asia and Europe. It is decreasing in large-scale commercial farming since better hay can usually be made more cheaply from sown crops, but it is still popular with subtropical and temperate small-scale farmers.Tropical Animal Health and Production is an international journal publishing the results of original research in any field of animal health, welfare, and production with the aim of improving health and productivity of livestock, and better utilisation of animal resources, including wildlife in tropical, subtropical and similar agro-ecological environments.Pasture Production in Acid Soils of the Tropics: Proceedings of a Seminar Held at CIAT, Cali, Colombia ( April, ) [Sanchez, Pedro A.; Tergas, Luis E.
