Participatory evaluation of cattle fattening innovations of smallholder farmers in Gamo Gofa, southern Ethiopia

Contributing to about 12-18% of the total GDP, 35-49% of agricultural GDP and 23% of export earnings, livestock production is an integral component of agriculture in Ethiopia.

In Gamo Gofa zone, southern Ethiopia, cattle fattening is a major source of livelihoods for many people. But the fattening system is traditional low-input-low-output and producers are not benefiting much from the sector.

This poster, produced for the Tropentag 2016 conference, shares key results of a study that evaluated the challenges and constraints, and cattle fattening innovations introduced through stakeholders participation in the region.
