FARMERS in Amarapura usually store forage for cattle they breed throughout the year in order to avoid shortages in summer.
Some farmers cut pea stems with choppers at a cost of K5,000 per hour and store them in granaries to be used as cattle forage. The owners of the choppers also profit during the summer.
Some farmers choose to be paid for their crops in cartloads of stems instead of money. Most farmers who breed cattle store all varieties of pea stems to ensure sufficient supplies of forage during summer, said a farmer from Amarapura.
