Those involved in both research and fieldwork will find a new book on Rice straw and related feed in ruminant rations useful for its application in developing countries. The publication is the outcome of the International Workshop on Straw Utilization held in Kandy, Sri Lanka, in 1986 which examined all possible methods of using straw for ruminant feed, what treatment is necessary and what supplements are called for. The practical consequences for smallholders of the differ: ent methods of application were a particular concern. For more details, contact: M.N.N. Ibrahaim or J.B. Schiere PO Box 138 Kandy SRI LANKA In view of the dearth of documentation in developing countries, students, teachers, research workers, agricultural advisers, and fieldworkers will also welcome an Australian work which collates all existing written information on the use of rice straw as feed for ruminants. Rice straw as a feed for ruminants is produced by the Australian Universities International Development Program. Each chapter of the book deals with a different subject giving a comprehensive survey of existing knowledge. Specifically, it covers methods of usage, nutritional value, analyses of necessary treatments and supplements (which are accorded particular importance), and a comparison of different methods in relation to value and cost. A final chapter also deals with the practical aspects of using rice straw as ruminant feed. For more details, contact: AUIDP GPO Box 2006 Canberra ACT 2601 AUSTRALIA
