Livestock farmers in Manicaland have been urged to embrace the call to start procuring their own fodder to supplement the limited pastures that normally characterize the winter seasons. Provincial Epidemiologist under the Veterinary Services Department Dr Innocent Chabvanga said preparations on supplementary feeding for their livestock is of great importance as winter season is associated with low pastures with inadequate nutrients. He further stated that on-farm feed formulations are critical in sustaining livestock and encouraged farmers to adopt the climate-resilient technologies as advised by researchers and extension experts.
