    Ethiopian Livestock Feed (ELF) Project: Introducing FEAST Ethiopian Livestock Feed (ELF) Project: Introducing FEAST Presentation Transcript

    • Ethiopian Livestock Feed (ELF) Project – introducing FEAST By Alan Duncan, Inception meeting for the ‘ Fodder and feed in livestock value chains in Ethiopia ’ project ILRI, Addis Ababa, 21-22 February 2012
    • FEAST
      • The problem
    • Feed assessment
      • Conventionally focuses on:
        • The feeds
        • Their nutritive value
        • Ways of improving nutritive value
      • FEAST broadens assessment:
        • Is livestock an important livelihood strategy?
        • How important are feed problems relative to other problems?
        • What about labour, input availability, credit, seasonality, markets for products etc.?
    • How does FEAST work?
    • PRA
      • General description of farming system
        • range of f arm sizes,
        • farm labour availability
        • annual rainfall pattern
        • irrigation availability
        • types of animals raised by households.
      • General description of livestock production
        • the types of animals raised (% of households raising these animals and average herd/flock sizes)
        • the purpose of raising these animals (e.g. draught, income, fattening, calf production)
        • the general animal husbandry (including; management, veterinary services and reproduction).
        • Ease of access to credit
        • How available are necessary inputs – plastic, urea, concentrates etc
      • Problem identification and potential solutions
    • Quantitative questionnaire
      • Animals – livestock inventory
      • Crops - yields and areas to derive crop residue availability
      • Cultivated forages – yields and areas
      • Collected fodder: proportion of diet
      • Purchased feed
      • Grazing: proportion of diet
      • Contributors to household income
      • Production.
        • Milk production
        • Sale of livestock
      • Seasonality.
        • Feed supply: overall seasonal availability
        • What is fed in different months?
    •  
    • Sample output
    • More sample output
    • Final output
      • Feast report with some ideas for key problems and solutions
      • Better links and understanding between farmers, research and development staff
