    I am into commercial Dairy farming and Goat farming.I ma having about 10 acre land for green fodder cultivation.But with this much land in hand I struggle to get enough quantity of Green fodder to feed about 50 Buffallo and 100 Goats round the year.
    We gorw fodder grass like CO3,mainly.We tried Mulato,Sorghum,Lusern,e.t.c but nothing was susscessfull excpet CO3.tHE land is fertile and heavy rainfall area as well so,no shortage of water e.t.c.It is a Sugarcane belt.I really dont know what we do wrong in preperation of the land before planting the seeds or fodder sticks.We also have lot of cow/buffallo dung and also goat droppings.Can anyone gude step by step preperation of the land for continues green fodder cuttings throughout year.

    Thanks & Regards

    It is not surprising that you are facing problem of feeding throughout the year the number of animals you are holding, because the thumb rule says that each acre of land will feed about 4 animals throughout the year. Going by the thumb rule you should be able to feed about 40 animals (buffaloes) throughout the year.

    However, if you feel that you are facing problem in even feeding about 40 animals, then I suggest you could try rhodes in 3-4 acres. It is perennial fodder, can be stored as hay and comes up every 45 days.

    Hope this info helps you.
