Texas Has Large
Vitamin A Source
Texas range forages even when
dead • or dormant were found to
contain considerable amounts of
carotene, according to a paper pre
sented by Dr. A. R. Kemmerer of
the Agricultural Experiment Sta
tion at t|ie Memphis meeting of
the American Chemist Society,
April 22. Dr. J. F. Fudge and Dr.
G. S. Fraps were joint authors of
the paper with Dr. Kemmerer.
Carotene is the substance in
plants that is converted into vita
min A when it is fed to animals.
Most of the dead or dormant for
ages contain not less than 4.0
parts per million carotene.
This amount of carotene is en
ough to satisfy the vitamin A re
quirements of range cattle; which,
according to work done at the
same Experiment Station, is 1500
micrograms ’ of carotene per 100
pounds of live weight. Sumac and
kafir silage also contained appre
ciable amounts of carotene; en
ough if the silage is fed in quan
tity, to meet the maintenance re
quirements of cattle.
The dried forages do not supply
enough carotene for milk produc
tion by dairy cows. Dairy cows
need nearly a million micrograms
of carotene daily to produce butter
fat high in vitamin A. This can be
obtained from almost all of the
green forages analyzed. For a
source of vitamin A green forages
are the least expensive and most
abundant, the scientists found.
