Wynn cassia is a new forage legume which was untested with grazing animals prior to its release in 1984. Wynn cassia was sown into two 24 ha paddocks of black speargrass and, in an unreplicated trial lasting 5 years, steer growth was compared between Wynn cassia paddocks, with and without superphosphate (55 kg/ha/yr), and with a 75 ha native pasture paddock, all at a common stocking rate of 2.4 ha/steer.
