goat feed

Did you know that you can supplement your goat feed with mulberry tree leaves and the tender branches.

The mulberry tree is very easy to propagate and it has a fast growth rate, you just take the branches and plant them along the yard boundary fence. Once its mature you just take the leaves and branches and give them to your goats.

I have 30 meat goats and they are surviving more on this tree and they are doing very well. The females are giving birth to healthy twins all the time. I have since started a zero grazing plan and am using this tree as the main feed and the results are amazing.
