Title: A ready reference feed dataset for the Ethiopian Livestock Feed Project


1
A ready reference feed dataset for the Ethiopian
Livestock Feed Project
  • Adugna Tolera

Ethiopian Livestock Feed Project Synthesis
workshop, Addis Ababa, 28-29 May 2012
2
Importance of feed database
  • Provides information on
  • Types of feed resources
  • Nutritive value of the feed resources
  • Indicative price of the feed resources (price
    trends and variability)
  • Indispensable inputs for ration formulation

3
Livestock production in developing countries
(Realities in the past and recent past)
  • Dominated by subsistence oriented smallholder
    livestock production system
  • Mainly depend on feed produced or available on
    the farm
  • Aims at making optimal use of available feed
    resources rather than maximizing productivity
  • Ration formulation (balancing rations with
    requirements) has not been a major concern

4
Current Scenario
Smallholder livestock production
Emerging commercial/market oriented livestock
production
  • Limited /no feed produced or available on the
    farm
  • Increased dependence on purchased feed
  • Aim at increasing production/productivity

Landless livestock production
Landless rural livestock production
Urban peri-urban livestock production
  • Information on feed quality and price
  • For making decision to purchase feed ingredients
  • For formulating balanced diet

5
Nutrient requirement of animals
Pre-requisites for ration balancing
Nutrient content of feeds
Price of feds
6
Efforts made so far to avail information on
nutritive value of feeds
  • Institutions engaged
  • Limitations
  • EIAR
  • Two institutional publications on nutritive value
    of Ethiopian feeds
  • ILRI and Collaborators
  • SSA Feeds
  • Ethiopian feed resources
  • SPS-LMM
  • Manual on feed resources and feeding management
  • Supported database developed by ILRI
  • ACDI/VOCA FEED Project
  • Feed database
  • Limited number and types of feed s covered
  • Little information on feeds resources of
    interest for commercial production
  • Inadequate description of feed attributes
    affecting quality
  • Limited number of parameters

Conclusion
  • The database provides better organized and more
    refined information on nutritive value of feeds
  • Can be enriched and updated from existing
    literature and as new information is generated
  • Price information shows price trends and
    variability .
  • Current price information must be obtained for
    use in ration formulation
