Raising Goats in Uganda
In Uganda, raising one goat is a way out of poverty. In this story from The Monitor, we get an overview of how the poorest-of-the-poor obtain their goats and keep them sheltered and fed.
“The farmer should grow such trees as mutuba, especially around his plot of land, and others like calliandra, guava, mango, jack fruit, and katazzamiti. Their leaves are good fodder for goats.”
“The goat’s droppings and urine may be used as manure in the garden by applying fistfuls of the droppings into each hole before planting.”
