The Agrobrief ‘FODDER TREES’ deals with trees and shrubs mainly or partially grown to provide fodder for livestock. The information in this brochure helps extension workers in the tropics to advice farmers about feeding fodder tree leaves to cattle, goats and sheep.
It describes in short how farmers can benefit from fodder trees and which type of tree, how many and where they should be planted.
It also deals with harvesting, feeding rations and the harmful side effects, when tree leaves are fed in excess to the animals.
