Event: Small-Scale Livestock Development and Extension Techniques Course

Venue: Nairobi, Kenya

Event Date: 13th – 17th November 2017.



The rapidly growing demand for livestock products worldwide is brought about by human population pressure, growing income and urbanization. Land use and human population pressures are leading to intensification and expansion in many livestock production systems. In addition, expansion of cropping into drier areas is forcing pastoral livestock production systems to relocate into still more arid lands. As a result of these changes new pressures on the environment are developing or could emerge and, therefore, should be of concern.

Livestock make an important contribution to most economies. It produce food, provide security, enhance crop production, generate cash incomes for rural and urban populations, provide fuel and transport, and produce value added goods which can have multiplier effects and create a need for services. Furthermore, livestock diversify production and income, provide year-round employment, and spread risk. Livestock also form a major capital reserve of farming households. This training course is designed to provide a guideline to participants’ in small scale livestock production and management as a source of livelihoods.
