    Enhancing Cattle Production in Azerbaijan through Effective Cattle Breeding and Feeding Systems - UTF/AZE/010/AZE 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Improved and sustainable livestock production is a national priority for agricultural development in Azerbaijan, and animal breeding and feeding are necessary components of this. In this context, cattle is the most important component of the livestock sector in the country. A large number of households keeps cows, but there are very few professional farmers. The average dairy cattle breeding household has fewer than five cows, which are sustained under extensive systems and produce an average of 1 528 litresper cow per year and 150 kg of meat per adult cattle. The level of low productivity is mainly caused by poor quality of feed, absence of concentrates, and a lack of correct animal reproductive practices. In addition, pastures are not properly managed, the forage is of poor quality, while good quality silage is not produced due to insufficient knowledge and technology. Against this background, the main objective of the project was to improve cattle productivity by establishing appropriate breeding management and strengthening services for artificial insemination (AI) and feeding systems.

    Choosing the best reproductive strategy for a cattle herd 2022
    Also available in:

    The publication is prepared in the framework of "UTF/AZE/010/AZE - Improvement of Cattle Production in Azerbaijan through Establishment of Effective Cattle Breeding and Feeding Systems" project implemented under the FAO-Azerbaijan Partnership Programme (FAPP, 2016-2021) that aims to improve cattle productivity through appropriate breeding management and strengthened services for artificial insemination, embryo transfer, and feeding systems. The purpose of the leaflet is to guide concerned beneficiaries during their decisions in selecting an appropriate reproduction strategy for their livestock herds. It provides a short narrative on each reproduction strategy including its pros and cons.

    Unlocking the Potential of Integrated Dairy Development in Uganda - TCP/UGA/3505 2019
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The dairy sector plays an important role in the Ugandan economy as a source of food, income and employment to many smallholder farmers. In the middle north cattle corridor, great potential exists to expand the dairy industry because of a high availability of crop by-products, such as oilseed cakes, local pastures and legumes. Although 60 percent of households keep livestock, they face a series of challenges and risks related to production, markets and the environment, and dairy cattle productivity is generally low. Therefore this project aimed to develop a viable dairy value chain in two districts of Apacand Kole, which are in the middle north cattle corridor. The two districts are endowed with local resources for dairy development. The focus of the project was on the improvement of livestock feeds and feeding systems among small-scale dairy farmers, and training on improved reproductive technologies and best breeding practices, as well as agribusiness, milk quality and hygiene
