Legumes have great potential to contribute significantly to sustainable intensification of livestock production in the tropics, along with the provision of ecosystem services.
This study provides a gender analysis of animal health in small-scale dairy farming and the food security implications in three villages of Tanzania.
Scientists from the Program have been conducting trials in India to improve the yield and quality of sorghum forage for livestock feeding.
A series of briefs was recently published outlining the main priorities emerging from the Tanzania livestock master plan analysis:
An ex-ante impact assessment was used to assess the impact of the ASF biocontrol and other interventions in peri-urban pig value chains in Uganda.
This guide from the Chicken Health for Development project provides an overview of chicken production and management in Ethiopia and of the health issues that impact productivity. It offers locally-specific information to improve chicken management and health across all scales of production. We hope that this guide assists those people responsible for chicken production in Ethiopia, including farmers, development agents and veterinarians, and enables enhanced productivity of the chickens and well-being for the people who rely on them.
A poster by scientists at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and the Swedish Agriculture University (SLU) highlights the role of the livestock health flagship program in addressing health-related issues in selected value chains.
