legume shrubs and legume fodder tree for cattle and animal

Hi , I want to grow lots of

legume trees at Trenton , Ontario

So I can feed my cattle just in case there is drought.

The legume trees also adds nitrogen to the soil.
But I am not sure what kind of legume trees are available. Can someone suggest some legume trees that I can grow . ( Legume shrubs are welcome too )

Honey Locust and Black Locust are native leguminous trees to Southern Ontario that are drought tolerant. The leaves, the fresh pods, and the seeds (after soaking) can be fed to livestock as is common in Asia and Africa with Acacia trees.

I would suggest that you use the same legume, but only when grown used instruments for soil moisture and grain in the stream. Read more information. I also live in the arid zone and has for years been using grain moisture meter in flow a315.
