Better Ways Of Cattle Rearing

Cattle rearing is one the economic opportunities which many cattle keepers in Lusambi never had some good knowledge about how to go about.They were doing it basing on their domestic use and consumption.They never knew what kind of breed of cattle to bread of cattle is very productive to them.They did not know that cattle require medical check-ups and treatment.Above all the problems they did not have any plans put side on how to feed their cattle. This came to thoughts of an organisation by the name Wewasafa which trained them on the type of cattle to rear,how to plan for its feeding.i.e.planting nappier grass,purchasing hay e.t.c.They also advised them to set aside a piece of land as paddocks for cattle feeding.This added value to the cattle rears and they were happy because they could get food and many from their cattle.
