SEASON SUPPLEMENTATION OF SMALLHOLDER RUMINANT ANIMALS. Fodder tree/shrub legumes have the potential for alleviating some of the feed shortages and nutritional deficiencies experienced in the dry season on smallholder farms.

Trees and shrubs have long been considered as important sources of nutrition for grazing animals, especially in those areas with a pronounced dry season.

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 Size: 2MB.

The area of livelihoods is the starting point for this research theme because smallholders make decisions about how to manage farms, considering all their constraints and opportunities, including those unrelated to trees and forests.

Although the biological advantages in terms of animal production and improved soil fertility of the use of herbaceous legumes have been well demonstrated in Kenya and elsewhere, adoption by small-scale farmers has often been disappointing.

This has led to increased research into the use of both indigenous and exotic fodder trees. In common with conventional pasture legumes, tree Cited by: This alphabetical list of common tree names are organized by genus, then species, subspecies, and variety.

This allows searches for the genus name of a tree (example Apple - Malus) so if you don't know the species name of Apple tree, you can locate it using the genus name and looking through the species names with tree descriptions and pictures.

In very the early spring, trees and shrubs with early blooms are critical for honey bees and our native bees. Some provide both nectar and pollen, and some only offer pollen. As the growing season progresses, more resources become available to bees, but you can help them out in early spring by planting some early blooming native trees and shrubs.

(For more information on. Animal Fodder; the crude protein content of leaves is %, which compares favourably with high quality temperate pasture, all grazing animals, pigs and poultry readily consume the leaves, and there are no reports of toxic compounds.

Bee Forage; one of the first trees to flower in spring and it is an excellent nectar source. Just about any species of Prunus will attract bees in large numbers. As an added bonus, they're also the host plants for hundreds of moths and butterflies. The genus Prunus includes cherries, plums, and other similar fruit-bearing you want to attract pollinators, consider planting either black cherry (Prunus serotina) or chokecherry (Prunus virginiana).

develop the tree fodder concept. Using trees as fodder Farmers usually harvest trees for supplementary fodder by pruning and pollarding the poplars and willows they planted for erosion control, or by coppicing or grazing livestock on fodder blocks, and some also take advantage of natural leaf fall from poplar trees and leave animals in paddocks.
