Bark is better than bites
When I feed branches to our goats, it is not just the leaves and twigs they eat. They often strip the bark and eat that as well. They are particularly enjoying haw tree bark, which is useful as we have a very good supply of haw branches from the local hedgerows which are in need of maintenance.
