LUCSOM’S UNIQUE MODEL IS BUILT AROUND LOCAL FARMERS, BOTH AS PRODUCERS AND CONSUMERS
Pelleting and commercialising fodder trees has never been done before on a meaningful scale in Africa. Lucsom’s model is carried out in partnership with commercial and smallholder farmers to grow and distribute seedlings, and sustainably grow and harvest biomass from fodder trees. This biomass gets pelleted along with macro and micro nutrients to produce a balanced feed for the dairy, meat and poultry market. The benefits of the Lucom model are far reaching as the end product offers an affordable source of feed for livestock that can be stored in times of need or sold for profit, improves milk and meat production, is a sustainable model for job creation and has a positive impact on the natural environment.
