Working Group - Beef Cattle

Context:

The consumption of beef and beef products have been on a steady rise over the last few years, while local beef production seems to have plateaued. Domestic cattle production is dominated by traditional smallholders who own on average 2-3 cattle – farmers who also have limited resources to provide the most effective care for cattle.

Activities:

  • Providing smallholders with infrastructure support, high quality animal feed to optimize weight gain and access to financing.
  • Running capacity building programs in collaboration with vocational schools, internship opportunities and training at KIBIF’s facilities.

 

Impact: KIBIF, Great Giant Livestock
