Grow Own Stockfeed, Dairy Farmers Urged

ZIMBABWE - Dairy farmers in Manicaland have been urged to grow and stash their own stockfeed to counter increasing prices of commercial stockfeed.

In an interview, Zimbabwe Farmers’ Union (ZFU) provincial manager Mr Daniel Mungazi said farmers should learn to grow livestock feed.

"It is now high time our farmers to go for home-grown feed in order to reduce the production costs.
