Présentation
In arid and semi-arid areas, the quality and quantity of forages varies appreciably with seasonal variations in rainfall and often leads to nutritional inadequacy. Use of browse forages as supplements is an alternative strategy that is gaining ground in research and development especially among the small-holder farmers in the tropics. This approach has tremendous potential for application with ruminants, especially where animals are abundant and managed under extensive conditions as in the arid and semi-arid region of Kenya. Therefore the overall objective of this study was to evaluate the nutritive value of leguminous tree and shrub forages from semi-arid zone of Kenya as ruminant feeds.
