Similar to the present study, increased N retention in sheep and goats given tanniferous feeds at modest levels due to lowered N excretion through urine has been reported earlier by several workers [2,3,28].
4] emission was reduced significantly by including tanniferous legumes .
Individual administration of three tanniferous
forage plants to lambs artificially infected with Haemonchus contortus and Cooperia curticei.
Laboratory Manual for the FAO/IAEA Co-coordinated Research Project on "Use of Nuclear and Related Techniques to Develop Simple Tannin Assays for Predicting and Improving the Safety and Efficiency of Feeding Ruminants on Tanniferous
Sclerenchyma bands with associated brachysclerids run longitudinally through the mesocarp and a layer of tanniferous
cells internal to the endocarp (Fig.
This is consistent with additional anatomical characters that support a close relationship between Aristolochia and Holostylis (Solereder, 1889a; Carlquist, 1993) especially the presence of idioblasts filled with brown, tanniferous
material in Holostylis (Solereder, 1889a) and at least in one species of its sister group such as A.

Chemistry: usually producing iridoids or alkaloids or both, as well as cardioglycosides, not strongly tanniferous
, seldom cyanogenic or saponiferous, various calcium oxalate crystals present in some parenchymatous tissue cells.
Another interesting property of these tanniferous
browse is, most of them are medicinal plants and that may attributed to their presumed antimicrobial properties.
The increase in milk fat of CT supplemented cows is also supported by the observations of local farmers that dairy cows fed tanniferous
leaves produce more butter.
contortus parasites with the strategic use of tanniferous
tree leaves, which otherwise remain under-utilized as animal feed.
Therefore, the hypothesis was tested that the tanniferous
forage sainfoin, given as hay, has an advantage over a typical grass hay in counterbalancing the limitations young pasture grass has in dairy cows with respect to N metabolism, ruminal pH, and chewing behavior.
