Now that the rainy season is coming to an end the community is starting to provide protection from the village livestock for their trees. The trees are the only green things left in the community as the dry season approaches. Goats are our trees worst enemy they are persistent to completely destroy the tender seedlings that the communities are trying so hard to grow. Personally goats have no use in a village, contrary to some Charities wanting donors to buy goats for their cause. Costing as much as $100.00 per goat. You can buy a goat anywhere in Zambia for $8.00, hmm? It would be different if they milked these goats but most are just left to roam the village and nearby forests for food. A village family can easily eat a goat at one sitting because they have little meat. I suggest turkeys or rabbits would give them a better yield food wise. If they still want to raise goats they should manage them better. To do this they should be growing trees and feeding them the leaves and of course milking them! Everyone would benefit from such a move.
