Re: [pfaf] food
> Most of the Animals I am familiar with [the ones I have raised, or hunted] have a broad base of nutrition, -- even the Coyote, [that I have spent time trapping] has an amazingly broad base of foods [mostly plants] that they eat. Even my cow if given her choice will eat lots of different plants, not just grass.When I said I wanted to make some goat pasture, I had our goat
specialist protesting and counting off all the goat beneficial
non-Gramineae we have (thinking that I wanted to remove these and
replace them with grass - we have dozens of species of grass).
Goats don't choose to eat the one weed I really want to eradicate from
our gardens (Mikania micrantha
). but they do eat loads of plants I want to keep. Too many to list !
Most of the especially goat-beneficial plants are protein-rich
Leguminosae like Mimosa pudica, Flemingia macrophylla, Leucaena
leucocephala, Cajanus cajan . . .
