Rabbits, guinea pigs, grasscutters or cane rats (domesticated breeds), and African giant snails are also kept and promoted as non-traditional livestock in Ghana. Though relatively small, livestock production constitutes an essential component of Ghana’s agricultural economy. Post forecasts reduction in MY2023 domestic livestock populations mainly due to high maintenance costs in recent times.
