  2. 2. Context<br />CSISA - O2.5 Assess opportunities for improved livestock integration in future cereal systems<br /> - Developing feeding strategies and intervention<br /> - Improving the efficiency of residue based feeding in the cereal system<br />Why Use FEAST?<br />systematic and rapid methodology for assessing feed resources and demand within a farming system<br />2<br />
  3. 3. How does FEAST work?<br />
  4. 4. Working hubs<br />Begusarai<br /> Karnal<br /> Chitwan<br />Dinajpur<br />
  5. 5. FEAST – lessons learned<br />Very Useful<br />Gives good overview of the system<br />Very useful to explore new areas<br />Good overview of current feeding practices – sources of different kinds of feed<br />Quick assessment of seasonal variation of feed supply, input and output<br />Participatory group discussion – explore Out of the box<br />
  6. 6. FEAST – lessons learned<br />Scope for improvement<br />Uncommon topics - How to deal with topics not commonly discussed?<br />Complexity of the system - How to capture the underlying factors which determine the use of crop residue?<br />Easy structure - How to make it simpler to local level worker to handle FEAST?<br />Proper sampling - How to make proper selection of farmers?<br />Qualitative and quantitative data – How to use it?<br />
  7. 7. FEAST – lessons learned<br />Issues<br />Both qualitative and quantitative aspect is important for planning and intervention<br />Scope of FEAST<br /><ul><li>more qualitative and quantitative?
  8. 8. FEAST to intervention or FEAST as a first step? </li></li></ul><li>More Information<br />https://sites.google.com/a/cgxchange.org/feast/home<br />8<br />
