  • 14. I used to get 2 liters in the morning and 3 liters in the evening before I introduced brachiaria to my cows’ menu. Today I get 5 liters in the morning and 3 liters in the evening, by blending brachiaria in my cow’s fodder mix. Brachiaria has survived where our local fodder did not make it through the dry season …….. Many farmers are all creating space for planting materials to plant when the rains come back. VBDA Stephen Nyamisi harvesting brachiaria (basilisk variety) from his quarter acre plot during February 2017 to feed his cow. ADOPTION & IMPACTS OF IMPROVED FODDER - PRODUCTIVITY
  • 15. ADOPTION & IMPACTS OF IMPROVED FODDER - INCLUSION Opportunity for smallholder inclusion • Poor farmers with limited land: • From subsistence to high- value fodder commercialization • Mr. Gembe plans to expand area and invest in more dairy cows I sold the 1st harvest from these 6 lines and paid school fee for my son. I am now expanding the area and I plan to buy 2 dairy cows from y next harvest. We cannot even meet the demand
