An analysis of the ecological and economic potential of fodder trees and tree fodder in Nepal, providing evidence that fodder trees are both a valuable source of animal feed and an effective means of preventing soil erosion.

The average fodder yield is 35 to 40 kg/tree annually with large trees producing up to kg/year. The average farm has 45 fodder trees of varying size, amounting to kg, providing about 15% of the annual feed and 10% of the fuelwood M. Kollmair. Fodder trees require little land, labor or capital but are knowledge-intensive.

• In East Africa, about 40–50% of fodder tree planters are women. • Fodder trees reduce the cost of meeting dairy cows’ protein requirements. • Key challenges constraining uptake are limited suitable species, seed and by: RANKING OF FODDER TREE SPECIES AND THEIR BIOMASS PRODUCTION IN THE HILLS AND MOUNTAIN OF NEPAL dam-projects.com1 and N.

3Pasture and Fodder Division, Khumaltar, Lalitpur, Nepal Abstract Large numbers of species of tree fodder are being used as green roughage source for goats in several farming systems. A study was carried out at Goat Research Station, Bandipur, Nepal in order to compare the feeding value of commonly used tree fodder leaves in mid-hills of Nepal.

multipurpose fodder trees (M FT) as a source of dry-season fo rage for ruminants in particular, as a basis for mitigating the current high rate of land degradation and loss of prod uctivity in livestock production systems in the region. Using trees as fodder for livestock is as old as The Bible (Genesis Chapter 31) and for many years some New Zealand farmers have resorted to cutting trees, especially poplars and willows planted mainly for soil conservation purposes, especially in Farmer experience with tree fodder.

Apr 04,  · Number of fodder trees per animal is an even more complex thing to balance than number of animals per acre of pasture. It varies so much with climate, soil and weather cycles. The only thing I have picked up is that proper rotation of the stock is even more.

Willow (Salix babylonica), Quercus semecarpifolia and Euonimus spp. were considered the most important species for temperate areas. Crude protein content of willow leaves decreased from % in April to % in October. Cited by: Because the cost of establishing and managing tree fodder systems is commonly much higher than for pastures or annual fodder crops, trees are only likely to be an option as an alternative or supplement for hay crops or purchased feed.

Fodder trees may be a good source of green forage during the rainy season or flood period and post-flood period. But no study was so far found to investigate the indigenous practice of the use of fodder trees in the Comilla region to show the real situation of the fodder trees.

Dec 17,  · The ideal fodder tree Criteria should apply to those trees that will replace pastures, so a comparison of their worth can be evaluated (Felker & Bandurski ).

Trees and shrubs with potential should: * show good growth characteristics: many fodder trees fit well within this criteria. Whichever case, the value of trees and shrubs as fodder needs to be kept in perspective with other commercial end uses when examining incentives for planting trees on farms.

Forage value The forage value of any feed depends on the combination of its palatability, nutritive value and digestibility. Leaf fodder and the acorns will be wonderful for our pigs. Not a good biodiversity tree in UK so planting is well spaced. Oak (Quercus robur) - timber, biodiversity and sheep love oak acorns even though conventional farming wisdom tells us they are poisonous.

Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) - used as protection to other edible fodder trees. Altogether 55 fodder trees were collected with their local information from Sunsari district, Nepal.

Among them, the leaves of 19 fodder trees were analyzed for dry matter, crude protein, ether. Tree fodder is the main constituent of livestock feed, especially for goats, in mid-hills of Nepal (Thapa et al., ; Pandey et al., ).

There are more than species of trees, shrubs and. Fodder, a type of animal feed, is any agricultural foodstuff used specifically to feed domesticated livestock, such as cattle, rabbits, sheep, horses, chickens and pigs.

"Fodder" refers particularly to food given to the animals (including plants cut and carried to them), rather than that which they forage for themselves (called forage).

In Nepal, tree fodder supplies 20 to 40 % of total feed during the dry winter season. However, browse production is severely limited due to combinations of factors including chilling Himalayan range, the long dry period and lack of soil moisture. Eighty five per cent ofkm2 total area of Nepal have high.

In the wild, goats would primarily eat tree leaves, which tend to be higher in minerals than grass and carry a lower risk for spreading internal parasites. So it's no surprise that when people talk about winter fodder for goats, they often talk about feeding them dried tree leaves.

Nov 30,  · FODDER TREES OF GRASSLANDS & THEIR NUTRITIVE VALUE COMMON FODDER TREES OF GRASSLAND & NUTRITIVE VALUE Jackalberry Tree- the Jackalberry tree, also known as African ebony tree, is found in Africa. Jackalberry trees provide fruit an important food source for humans, wildlife, and birds.

The Jackalberry tree grows in hot climates. Farmers used an indigenous board game, bao, to rank species. Improved, stall-fed dairy animals were the dominant livestock type in the subhumid zone whereas communally-grazed, local-breed cattle and goats were common in the dry zone.

A total of different local fodder trees and shrubs were used by farmers in the three zones. Trees and Shrubs for Livestock Fodder. Introduction. Assessing the Value of Browse Plants.
