Commercializing the Goat sector
in Zimbabwe
How can we engineer better lives for people
in water-scarce environments?
• Focused our work at the level of the farmer, their
world, how they operate and make decisions.
Working hypotheses:
(i) poorly developed markets (for livestock products and
services) are the main constraint limiting the
intensification of small-scale farming systems;
(ii) only when farmers engage in markets will they invest
in more productive management technologies.
It facilitates dialogue between the main local market players to collectively
identify challenges and opportunities to improve production and
marketing of livestock.
Farmers, input suppliers, traders, transporters, processors,
wholesalers, retailers, research and development
fraternity, regulators and policy makers
Platforms are established around local specific production and marketing
systems, and ideally merge into larger networks for improved coordination
of livestock commercialization processes (geographical, institutional).
The Innovation Platform
Identify and implement strategies that will improve market
efficiency and reduce transaction costs along the value chain,
thereby increasing the efficiency of the overall system,
allowing more money to flow to the producer and increasing
the incentive for improved farming practices.
Identify and promote technologies that will improve
agricultural production at the household level - and thereby
increase productivity and eventually profitability.
Develop local capacity to innovate, analyze challenges and
opportunities – reduce risk and increase potential income.
Ensure the real questions/issues are asked and addressed
Ensure that processes are pursued and not only technologies
or commodities.

And a few words on the process…
• Found a strong entry point – contextualize the
work in the farmers reality
• Goats represent food and income – buy food,
pay for education and human health
• Bottlenecks in goat production and marketing
– Very high mortality rates because of poor
nutrition, animal health and housing.
– Very limited support systems.
– Absence of functional markets
The development process
• Built markets and reduced transaction costs along the value
chain, involved many other players.
• Functional markets resulted in dramatic increases in
prices… increased from < $12 to $60 between 2008 and
2014 at the formal market. Farm gate price is $23!
• This drove significant investments in goat management and
the way farmers made decisions;
– Mortalities dropped from 18-25% to less than 10%!
• Farmers are reinvesting in goats
– Increased diversity in crops/feed
• True to complex systems, other role players started
investing too. NGOs built 19 more sale-pens in
Matabeleland; dip tanks, vet inputs supply etc.

Complex systems theory
• Complex systems consist of many (layers,
tiers) of interacting subsystems
• Synergies between subsystems: the system is
larger than sum of the individual sub systems
• No central coordination - complex systems are
self regulating with many and complex
feedback loops
Folke et al. (2003) defined four clusters of factors that interact
across temporal and spatial scales that increase the resilience of
SES
A word on Resilience
• Learning to live with change and uncertainty
• Nurturing diversity in its various forms
• Combining different types of knowledge for learning
• Creating opportunity for self-organization and cross-scale
linkages

Reducing Mortality
• Find workable entry points and system leverages
– Ensure the entry points used are valid and contextualized.
• Create the incentives for investments: markets
– Real change is a function of decision making and changing behavior
rather than the mere adoption of technologies
• Technology-based interventions or Process-oriented R&D
– Its not bad science – its good science poorly implemented
– Putting technologies in context of livelihood systems
• Water vs. System level entry points
– You don’t have to work with water to have an impact on water
• Sometimes improving existing systems have no/little impact,
we need to facilitate the transformation of systems
– From crop focused systems to livestock focused systems
What are the lessons learnt?

Conclusions
• Using sound theory, hypotheses, process thinking, the correct entry points,
system leverages and incentives, we can improve the efficiency of crop
livestock systems (in terms of income, reducing risk and WUE/LWP)
• We can impact on water without making it the “entry point” because water
as such may not provide sufficient incentive for changes in behavior.
• System and process oriented R&D strategies are required to bring about
lasting positive change.
• Transforming crop-focused mixed systems to livestock-based crop livestock
systems with functional markets will be a real option in the face of climate
change.
• Improving market access and overall systems efficiency will improve income,
and feedback mechanisms will increase sustainability while increasing
diversity (in commodities and markets), knowledge sharing and capacity to
self-organize will increase resilience.

Goat Production and Marketing in Zimbabwe

  • 1. By Andre van Rooyen, Sabine Homan Kee-Tui, Patricia, Thabani Dube & Allan Majuru. Commercializing the Goat sector in Zimbabwe
  • 2. How can we engineer better lives for people in water-scarce environments?
  • 3. • Focused our work at the level of the farmer, their world, how they operate and make decisions. Working hypotheses: (i) poorly developed markets (for livestock products and services) are the main constraint limiting the intensification of small-scale farming systems; (ii) only when farmers engage in markets will they invest in more productive management technologies.
  • 4. It facilitates dialogue between the main local market players to collectively identify challenges and opportunities to improve production and marketing of livestock. Farmers, input suppliers, traders, transporters, processors, wholesalers, retailers, research and development fraternity, regulators and policy makers Platforms are established around local specific production and marketing systems, and ideally merge into larger networks for improved coordination of livestock commercialization processes (geographical, institutional). The Innovation Platform
  • 5. Identify and implement strategies that will improve market efficiency and reduce transaction costs along the value chain, thereby increasing the efficiency of the overall system, allowing more money to flow to the producer and increasing the incentive for improved farming practices. Identify and promote technologies that will improve agricultural production at the household level - and thereby increase productivity and eventually profitability. Develop local capacity to innovate, analyze challenges and opportunities – reduce risk and increase potential income. Ensure the real questions/issues are asked and addressed Ensure that processes are pursued and not only technologies or commodities. Objectives of the IP

  • 12.
  • 13. And a few words on the process… • Found a strong entry point – contextualize the work in the farmers reality • Goats represent food and income – buy food, pay for education and human health • Bottlenecks in goat production and marketing – Very high mortality rates because of poor nutrition, animal health and housing. – Very limited support systems. – Absence of functional markets
  • 14. The development process • Built markets and reduced transaction costs along the value chain, involved many other players. • Functional markets resulted in dramatic increases in prices… increased from < $12 to $60 between 2008 and 2014 at the formal market. Farm gate price is $23! • This drove significant investments in goat management and the way farmers made decisions; – Mortalities dropped from 18-25% to less than 10%! • Farmers are reinvesting in goats – Increased diversity in crops/feed • True to complex systems, other role players started investing too. NGOs built 19 more sale-pens in Matabeleland; dip tanks, vet inputs supply etc.

  • 28. Complex systems theory • Complex systems consist of many (layers, tiers) of interacting subsystems • Synergies between subsystems: the system is larger than sum of the individual sub systems • No central coordination - complex systems are self regulating with many and complex feedback loops
  • 29. Folke et al. (2003) defined four clusters of factors that interact across temporal and spatial scales that increase the resilience of SES A word on Resilience • Learning to live with change and uncertainty • Nurturing diversity in its various forms • Combining different types of knowledge for learning • Creating opportunity for self-organization and cross-scale linkages

  • 38. • Find workable entry points and system leverages – Ensure the entry points used are valid and contextualized. • Create the incentives for investments: markets – Real change is a function of decision making and changing behavior rather than the mere adoption of technologies • Technology-based interventions or Process-oriented R&D – Its not bad science – its good science poorly implemented – Putting technologies in context of livelihood systems • Water vs. System level entry points – You don’t have to work with water to have an impact on water • Sometimes improving existing systems have no/little impact, we need to facilitate the transformation of systems – From crop focused systems to livestock focused systems What are the lessons learnt?

  • 40. Conclusions • Using sound theory, hypotheses, process thinking, the correct entry points, system leverages and incentives, we can improve the efficiency of crop livestock systems (in terms of income, reducing risk and WUE/LWP) • We can impact on water without making it the “entry point” because water as such may not provide sufficient incentive for changes in behavior. • System and process oriented R&D strategies are required to bring about lasting positive change. • Transforming crop-focused mixed systems to livestock-based crop livestock systems with functional markets will be a real option in the face of climate change. • Improving market access and overall systems efficiency will improve income, and feedback mechanisms will increase sustainability while increasing diversity (in commodities and markets), knowledge sharing and capacity to self-organize will increase resilience.
