Abstract:

Agroforestry is a dynamic, ecologically based natural resources management system in which trees and/or shrubs are grown in association with agricultural crops, pastures or livestock either simultaneously or sequentially on the same unit of land. Shortage of feed supply in terms of both quantity and quality is the main constraint limiting the realization of exploitation of the full potential of the livestock resources. Fodder tree and shrub have always played a role in feeding livestock. They are increasingly recognized as important component of animal feeding; especially as supplies of protein in different parts of developing countries. In Ethiopia different scholars reported the importance of these fodder species at different time. In generally fodder trees have ecological and socioeconomic advantage to the society. To sustainably utilize these recourses there should be management, conservation and standard tending systems.

Keywords: Agroforestry, fodder, animals, protein.
