    • Women in dairy value chain development Background• Dairy is an important marketable commodity in Ethiopia.• Women have close engagement in the production and marketing of milk and milk products. – They perform most of the production activities such as feeding, watering, animal hygiene, day to day management, milking and processing. – Women in rural areas sell and control income from butter, while women in peri‐urban and urban areas sell and control income from milk• Increasing demand for dairy products creates good opportunities to increase women’s role in dairy value chain development and hence to raise  their income. Key gender – focused intervention in urban and peri‐urban dairy systems Women farmers should be carefully targeted as potential beneficiaries in  dairy development through: • Provision of knowledge and skills on: • Proper dairy production management: housing, hygiene, feeding,  milking, milk handling and processing  • Introduction of high milk yielding breeds  • Provision of veterinary and AI services • Facilitation to input and output market linkage such as  • Input suppliers  • Collectors • Processors • Quality control • Collective action (bulk purchase) • Cooperatives  • Enhancing their leadership role in cooperatives  Key gender‐focused intervention in rural dairy systems Women farmers should be carefully targeted as potential beneficiaries in: • Provision of skills and knowledge on improved dairy production management  • Forage development efforts such as:  • Backyard forages • Communal grazing land  • Enclosed protected area, bottom land, waste land • Introduction of selected breeds for butter production • Provision of services such as • Community Animal Health Workers • Access to bull services • Collective action for processing  • Market linkages Lessons learned • Targeting women for training and knowledge sharing along dairy value chains can move women from subsistence to semi‐commercial  producers • Integrated dairy development interventions in rural areas such as forage development and paravets  increase women income through butter  selling • Linking women with milk markets and input suppliers can enhance dairy development • Commercializing dairy may marginalize women unless deliberate targeting is made•This document is licensed for use under a Creative Commons Attribution‐Noncommercial‐Share Alike 3.0 Unported License.
