Abstract

Since 1965, selenium has been recognized as the toxicant naturally present in certain foodstuffs which cause the malady of livestock known as "alkali disease". Although selenium is present in very small amounts in plants and in even smaller amounts in soils, feeding of seleniferous forage caused serious losses in livestock in many areas of the Great Plains.
