Leaves

Post by Jane M » Fri Jul 31, 2009 7:13 pm

I know there are a few trees that are poisonous but are some leaves good for pigs? In their 2 acre field there are sycamore and ash which I believe are fine for sheep, cows and horses. Sometimes we need to shut them into their smaller enclosure when the sheep are being driven through, is it safe to throw them in a branch of ash or sycamore leaves to keep them busy?

I have never seen my kunes take any interest in Ash or Sycamore branches,they have access to a variety of trees but never touch them.The pigs concentrate on the grass,but my goats will choose trees over every thing :)
