Abstract: (En)
Sheep were grazed for up to nearly a year on a rehabilitated bauxite stockpile. There were three sites grazed; a dryland (medic and ryegrass) and an irrigated site (clover and kikuyu), both on the Rehabilitation Area, and a site on adjacent farmland. Sub-groups of sheep were removed from the Rehabiliation Area for tissue sampling at various times during the trial. At the end of the trial all remaining sheep on the Rehabiliation Area, as well as a sub-group of sheep from the farm area, were removed for tis e sampling. Mineral concentrations were measured in blood and tissue sample collected over the trial as well as in samples of pasture. Results of the Rehabilitation Area trial were; sheep maintained good health and grew well over the trial; the statuses
