Crop residues for animal feed: Especially in stall-feeding
Straw is vital for animal feed and other purposes for many resource-poor farmers, yet growing demand for raw materials and fuel is putting pressure on its use. Aimed at extension workers, advisors and smallholders, this Agrodok reviews experiences from around the world and discusses in depth how straws can continue to play an important role in feeding livestock and sustainable farming. Practical, easy to use and with scientific terminology condensed into terms that farmers will understand, this guide summarises a wide variety of information on straw availability and storage, its nutritive value, and the economics and sustainability of the different ways of using straw.
