The Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research recently commissioned a small scoping study on feed issues in livestock value chains in Ethiopia. The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) with national research and development partners (Ethiopian Institute for Agricultural Research; Amhara Regional Agricultural Research Institute) will be implementing this work in the coming few months.
The purpose of the project is to develop a preliminary understanding of how feed components of intensifying livestock production systems in Ethiopia are changing as systems intensify and how this is reflected in the feed-related elements of focal value chains.
The project runs from January – June 2012
This project is part of the CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish.
