Floridians called on to plant more protein plants for animal feed

Florida, Sep 28.- The sowing of sufficient protein plants to complement the feeding of livestock and fattening animals, is another of the challenges of agricultural activity in the municipality of Florida given the economic need to replace imports of feed and other inputs.
Reversing the current non-compliances and promoting growth in moringa, tithonia and mulberry plantations along with other pastures and forages, will also allow to minimize the cases of malnutrition and deaths within the livestock mass during the stages of extreme drought.

In this sense, much remains to be done in the Florida territory, as revealed in a recent administrative analysis where the directors of the Municipal Delegation of Agriculture reported that only slightly more than half of the plan for planting protein plants planned to date has been achieved. that is to say about 360 hectares.

Due to breaches like that, every year in different agricultural units of the Florida municipality, low yields are experienced in the collection of milk, effects on the development of the livestock mass and deaths of animals, to the detriment of the local and national economy.

The need for a generalized productive awareness in the agricultural sector stands out, based on the priority of sowing protein plants in the available soils to guarantee more food and therefore better attention to the cattle mass and the fattening animals, which then it reverts to more food options for the people.
