DescriptionThe purpose of this paper is to consolidate avilable information on several important browse plants of the Georgia coastal plain so that their value and over-all contribution to cattle feed can be more fully assessed and compared to other kinds of forage. Numerous observation and notes pertaining to cattle diet were accumulated in the vicinity of the Alapaha Experimental range, Berrien County, Georgia, from 1942 to 1955. These provided good estimations as to the kind and amounts of browse plants eaten at various times of the year. An indication of the nutritive value of many individual plants was obtained by means of chemical analyses made during these same years. Although chemical analysis is not a specific measure of digestible nutrients, such data signify the approximate food value of a plant.
