Unlocking the incredible potential of Mulberry in livestock farming with the collaborative efforts of Belize and Taiwan

Posted: Thursday, February 15, 2024. 3:46 pm CST.

Mulberry, scientifically known as Morus Alba, takes center stage in livestock nutrition with its leaves boasting an impressive 12-18% crude protein. Palatable and digestible, it’s a game-changer for animal diets in our tropical climate, yielding 5-8 tons of dry matter annually.

For optimal feeding, mixing Mulberry silage with concentrate and molasses, achieves a balanced 60:40 ratio. Planting tips include mature stalks or cuttings, ensuring robust shoot growth and root development through nursery bags, beds, or direct field planting during the rainy season.

Mulberry isn’t just for livestock – it’s a versatile superstar! From protein banks to silage and even crafting delicious jams and jellies from its fruits, Mulberry is making waves in agriculture. Harvesting every 3-4 months, with a strategic grazing cycle and rest period, ensures maximum yield. Careful pruning in November or December stimulates re-growth, providing ample fodder during the dry season.

This collaborative effort is a testament to the power of international cooperation in agriculture, bringing innovative practices to Belize’s livestock sector. Let’s celebrate the journey of growth, sustainability, and the promise Mulberry holds for our farming community!
