Sheryn’s tips for extra fodder
A widely varied diet is beneficial to animal health, but also to your pasture which will become more efficient in terms of recycling nutrients, supplying food throughout the different seasons, and hosting a balance of micro-organisms to combat issues like facial eczema, grass grub, bloat etc.
WE CAN’T live on chocolate alone and variety is the spice of life so offer your animals just about every herb humans can eat.
UNDERPLANT trees with beneficial plants like wormwood, comfrey, rosemary etc. The bees will love them, and the stock will self-medicate on them, nibbling when required.
YOU CAN also undersow your pasture with a range of grasses and browsing herbs like chicory, yarrow and plantain.
