One of our hardiest varieties.

Used by many farmers to utilise low-yielding land and/or to have animal fodder production during dry seasons.
Foriaged by cattle, sheep, goats, rabbits, etc.

Please do your own research on saltbush's stock fodder suitability for the animals you want to feed it to, as I will not be held liable if you feed it to your one of kind egg-laying Llamas, milk producing emu, normal ruminant or similar and it keels over and dies :-)
