    This report summarizes the methodologies used in implementing a certified smallholder supply chain and testing marketing traceable free range chicken for the Pilot Project for Certified Smallholder Poultry Supply Chains in Ha Noi. Previous studies have indicated a high level of demand for smallholder chicken in Ha Noi, and this undeveloped market has the potential to both improve public health and alleviate rural poverty. Several small poultry farms with suitable feeding practices that adhered t o national farm safety standards were selected to sell 3,600 chicken into a supply chain for 8 vendors in Ha Noi markets over a 1 month period. The farms were supported by local veterinary officials and sold chicken to traders who worked with slaughterhouses that cooperated with this project. Use of local institutions and existing vendorslaughterhouses relationships has improved the sustainability of these activities, and the use of chicken tags introduced a simple but effective innovation to en sure traceability.

Mixed croplivestock farming is the predominant farming system practiced by over 80 percent of rural households in the state. Bovines account for about 40 percent of the livestock population and milk is one of the most important products of cattle and buffalo enterprises, contributing over half of the value of total livestock output of the state. Andhra Pradesh’s milk is produced by 5 million dairy farmers, most of which own less than 2 hectares and 1 to 4 dairy animals.
