Ethiopia: USDA’s Food for Progress Program Strengthens Ethiopia’s Dairy Sector
Under USDA’s Food for Progress Program, USDA and ACDI/VOCA are working together to support the development of Ethiopia’s livestock feed sector through the Feed for Enhancement of Ethiopian Development project (FEED). This report highlights one of many FEED success stories. Specifically, because of the technical and in-kind support provided by the FEED project, the Habebo Dairy Cooperative over the past five years has increased its milk production by more than ten-fold to an average of 360-liters per day. Higher milk yields mean increased profits for cooperative members who are using their extra income to expand their individual dairy operations and improve their standard of living.
