FODDER

By Christopher Chisi

 

Livestock farmers have been urged to venture into fodder production in order to improve their livestock production.

 

Fodder is a type of animal feed which is used to feed domesticated livestock, such as cattle, chickens and pigs.

 

Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock, Senior Livestock and Production officer Elison Msimuko says fodder being a legume, is nutritious, with high protein content which is vital for the livestock.

 

Msimuko says in view of this they have already started distributing seed so as to encourage farmers to grow the legumes.
