Potential Livestock Research Areas in
(LIVES) Project
Azage Tegegne
LIVES Research Planning Workshop
March 26-28, 2013
Why research?
• To create knowledge on project’s livestock
interventions
– To feed into the learning activities in the project
areas.
– To disseminate the knowledge for scaling out
beyond the project areas.
Livestock research focus areas
• Gaps in knowledge in proposed livestock
value chain system in the 10 Zones
• Value chain interventions (gender sensitive)
• Extension (knowledge management, capacity
development) interventions (gender sensitive)
Potential livestock research categories
• Diagnostic research
• Action research
• Impact research
(all gender sensitive with gender disaggregated data)
Diagnostic dairy research
•
•
•
•
Rapid assessment butter market channels and consumers
Assessment on-farm butter processing systems
Assessment fertility management dairy cows
Assessment feeding practices dairy animals in peri-urban
and rural system
• Assessment fluid milk/butter quality at different stages of
the value chain
• Rapid assessment/action planning communal grazing area
development
• Access to knowledge/skills development peri-urban and
rural dairy production for male, female and youth farmers
Action research dairy
• Innovation history of dairy value chain development
• Cost benefit analysis of selected dairy production
interventions in peri-urban and rural system
• Studies on mass insemination program vis a vis other
institutional approaches
• Studies on communal grazing area development
• Studies on forage seed multiplication system
• Different institutional arrangements for dairy processing in
peri-urban fluid milk system/rural butter system
• Assessment dairy specific knowledge/capacity interventions,
including dairy platforms
Diagnostic research small/large ruminants
• Rapid assessment supply channels for fattening small and large
ruminants
• Assessment small ruminants diseases and mortality
• Assessment feeding practices small and large ruminants at
different growth stages

breeding program
• Assessment/action planning meat quality in local butcheries and
abattoirs
• Access to knowledge/skills development small/large ruminants
production by male, female and youth
Action research small/large ruminants

development
• Cost benefit analysis improved fattening small/large
ruminants

interventions including fattening platforms
Diagnostic research poultry
• Rapid assessment egg and poultry market
channels/consumers
• Assessment chicken diseases and mortality
• Assessment feeding practices by peri-urban and
rural poultry producers
• Access to knowledge/skills development on poultry
production by urban and peri-urban male, female
and youth
Action research poultry

interventions for peri-urban and rural poultry
production
• Studies on different institutional arrangements
for pullet production system

health service delivery
• Studies on poultry specific knowledge/capacity
interventions including poultry platforms
Diagnostic research apiculture
• Rapid assessment of raw and clear honey
market channels/consumers
• Assessment bee colony supply channels and
acquisition
• Assessment bee feeding/sources over the year
• Access to knowledge/skills development
apiculture production by urban and periurban male, female and youth
Action research apiculture
• Innovation history of apiculture value chain
development
• Cost benefit analysis apiculture production
interventions

capacity interventions, including apiculture
platforms
Livestock impact research
• Double difference and other studies
– Dairy value chain
– Small/large ruminants value chain
– Poultry value chain
– Apiculture value chain
Research outputs
• Location specific and synthesized diagnostic
findings
• Location specific and synthesized livestock
interventions
• Location specific and synthesized livestock
specific extension interventions
• Location specific and synthesized livestock impact
studies

Prioritization research locations
• Importance of a commodity between
zones – based on number HHs involved
• Importance of the commodity within a
zone – based on number of HHs involved
• Sites with high scores on both criteria
considered first
