      This study was carried out to evaluate concentration of micro minerals (Zn,Fe,Mn,Cu and Se) of forages and their distribution on fiber fraction Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF) and Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF) in south sumatera during dry and rainy season. Seven species of commonly forages namely Axonopus Compressus, Panicum Maximum, Pennisetum Purpuphoides, Leucaena Leucocephala, Centrocema Pubescens, Calopogonium Mucunoides and Accia Mangiumwere collected at native pasture during rainy and dry seasons. The results showed that micro mineral concentration of forages and their distribution in fiber fraction varied among species ans season. In general, concentration of micro mineral was slightly higher in rainy season compared to dry season either in grass or legumes forages. In grass concentration of Fe and Mn were above the critical level, while 33,3%, 1005 and 16,7% of evaluateed grass were deficient in Fe. Distribution of micro minerals in NDF and ADF were also significantly affected by species and season and depends on the kinds of element measured. Generally, micro minerals were associated in fiber fraction much higher during dry season compared to rainy season. Iron (Fe) and Selenium (Se) in forages were highest elements associated in NDF and ADF, while the lowest was found in copper(Cu).
