If there is a forage crop that excites one successful goat raiser, it is a small leguminous tree that is popularly known as Indigofera.
This is a low-growing tree that was introduced into the country several years ago. We first heard of it being grown at the Mindanao Baptist Rural Life Center in Bansalan, Davao del Sur, in the late ‘80s.
Unfortunately, it was not one of the forage crops that local livestock experts recommended for propaga-tion. It is said that the leaves were considered too tough for the farm animals.
