Ethiopian livestock farmers hope for a modern future
by Haleluya Gebru
Young farmers in the vicinity of Wukro in northern Ethiopia see a future in which their livestock production is improved, where their animals get balanced feed and
modern shelter, and where they have access to adequate veterinary services and clean water. They also envision a future where they are able to adopt modern technologies such as milk processing plants, so their dairy production can be effective and efficient, where agricultural inputs are readily available in local shops, and
where they can use their animals’ manure properly in their farming activities.
