Uganda Pig Value Chain: Initial ideas for Integrated Core Project

  1. 1. Uganda Pig Value Chain: Initial ideas for Integrated Core Project Ben Lukuyu and Emily Ouma, ILRI Livestock CRP Priority Countries Planning Meeting 26 – 27 March 2019 Nairobi, Kenya
  2. 2. What we have learned so far • Our focus value chain: Pig Value Chain, Uganda The major focus is on improving pig productivity, incomes, and pork safety through an environmentally sustainable and gender inclusive integrated intervention package.
  3. 3. What we have learned so far • Achievements & lessons from Livestock & Fish – Capacity building of farmers on improved husbandry and biosecurity practices – Capacity building of butchers on appropriate pork slaughter and pork – Use of feed rations from locally available resources – Integration of high quality forages in pig diets – Multi-stakeholder Platforms (MSPs) developed for visibility of pig value chain and knowledge sharing for stakeholders – Capacity building of pig farmer groups in business and governance issues. – Developed business plan for centralised pig slaughter facility in Masaka district. – Developing equations for predicting pig live weight using body measurements in pigs. – Ex-ante assessment of pig biosecurity interventions
  4. 4. What we have learned so far • Do we know enough to design an intervention? – A situational analysis was conducted for the smallholder pig value chain in 2014 – Pig Value chain assessments, were conducted with various stakeholders in the pig value chain between April and June 2012 and identified the key challenges faced by the pig value chain These assessments are sufficient to provide evidence to move our work into Phase 2 – There were series of reflection and feedback workshops with various actors in the pig value chains to assess the interventions we piloted – May require another round of reflection and feedback workshop with actors and partners to obtain feedback on proposed interventions – Partnerships and collaborations will need to be re-vitalized
  5. 5. What we have learned so far • What could we reasonably expect to achieve as outcomes by December 2021? – Innovative models for increasing farmers’ access to quality and reliable inputs and services for improved pig productivity (productivity and income). – Strategies for improving supply and access to quality and safe pork products (more and safe). – Innovations for improving farm management and disposal of pig waste (environment and waste management). – Models for improving quality of commercial feeds supplied in the value chain and animal welfare issues (e.g. transportation of pigs, appropriate slaughtering)
  6. 6. What an integrated intervention could look like • Title: A strongly input and output market linked integrated ‘best bet’ technological packages to support smallholder pig farmers • Target population: Eight million pig value chain actors • Integrating our best bets – The integrated intervention package will be a combination of improved genetics + feeds + health+ Env. including appropriate husbandry practices and on-farm waste management. – New types of contractual arrangements that support stronger linkages between pig aggregators, input suppliers and farmers will be piloted to incentivize uptake of the integrated intervention. • Key challenges – We will require a fulltime Post Doc or Research Assistant to conduct and monitor the interventions. – A communications person will be needed to maintain a high visibility set up in Phase 1.
