Ethiopia: USDA’s Food for Progress Program Strengthens Livestock Sector

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

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 Bokra Farmer's Cooperative Union established a commercial feed enterprise. Bokra's members who use the improved feed report significant increases in milk and meat yields. These higher yields translate into extra income that can be used to improve individual farmers’ standard of living.
