Leaves and twigs of trees, prickly pear stalks and vine branches in animal feeding



Leaves and twigs of trees, prickly pear stalks and vine branches in animal feeding



Boll. Serv. Agric. Libia. 5: 1-6



The leaves and young shoots of many trees (e.g. mulberry, olive, carob, almond) have considerable nutritive value and some stimulate gastric secretion and secretion of milk. They may be fed fresh, ensiled or dried, preferably mixed with other feeding stuffs. The chopped stems of the prickly pear are rich in moisture and facilitate the digestion of hay and straw.
