Bava Metzia 90a: Vetch substitutions...

According to Rashbi, instead of letting an unmuzzled animal eat what it is threshing, you can give it karshinim, that is, vetch, in a feed bag, because that is the best fodder for an animal.
What if the vetch isn't available, but you substitute something that is, in many respects, similar to it? Then the Jewish-owned ox's response will be appropriate: k'vetch.
