  3. 3. INTRODUCTION<br />Ethiopia is endowed with various agro-ecological zones and Milk is produced in all parts of the country<br />It is believed that Ethiopia possesses the highest cattle population in Africa with a total cattle heads of about 52 million(About 55.48 percent are females)<br />Ninety eight percent of the total milk produced comes from the rural dairy system while only 2% percent is contributed by the commercial dairy<br />Ninety-seven percent of the total milk produced from cattle is obtained from indigenous breeds while the remaining 3% comes from exotic-crosses and pure-grade cattle<br />11/24/2010<br />CAPACITY BUILDING INITIATIVE ON DAIRY DEVELOPMENT<br />3<br />
