Growing Animal Feed Plants in Laos

Money made from selling livestock is considered very good in Laos.  This video talks about the benefits of growing forages or animal feed to make bigger and healthier animals and thereby making more money when it's time to sell the animal or its meat.  It's a program that's being encourage by the organization CIAT (Center for International Tropical Agriculture).

Our take on this:  It's interesting.  However the only caveat and slight concern is that some of the people do this as substitute for growing food for people such as vegetables or rice which is the food staple.
