Research Opportunity: Theme - Enhancing productivity of traditional goat Phenotypes among small holder farmers of Uganda
In Uganda, approximately 40% of the rural households rare goats as an important socio-economic activity. Unfortunately, due to the increased expansion of crop agriculture and settlement, areas under browse production for goats have reduced resulting into diminished goat productivity. One way of increasing goat productivity is through improvement in available feeds. However because of the varied nature of Uganda’s landscape and the presence of different breeds, it is difficult to design an all inclusive feed regime for the entire Uganda.
