Characterizing livestock production systems and the potential to enhance livestock productivity through improved feeding in Ethiopia

Earlier this year scientists from ICARDA and national partners carried out livestock feed assessments in 12 districts in Ethiopia.

The studies aimed to provide an overview of the farming system in each site, identifying major livestock production problems, opportunities and potential interventions with particular emphasis on livestock feed aspects for improving the production and productivity of livestock.

The ‘Feed Assessment Tool‘ (FEAST) was used in the studies.

The twelve reports are online in the Africa RISING repository.
