Input and service provision supply methods in mixed crop-livestock production systems in South-Ethiopia: Improvement options from a dairy perspective
Terefe, T. ; Lee, J. van der - \ 2015
- 7 p.
This study was conducted in the Dale and Shebedino districts of southern Ethiopia during the period October 2014 to January 2015. It investigates dairy-related input and service provision in mixed crop-livestock production systems. Data were collected from 120 dairy producers, six focus group discussions, and six key informant interviews. Concentrate feed, improved forage seed, heifers, breeding services, and veterinary services, &drug supply appeared to be the main dairy inputs and services used by the farmers. In Dale district, concentrate feed and breeding serviceswere the main input and servicesobtained by dairy farmers, whilethe farmers in Shebedino district more frequently use improved forage seed and veterinary vaccinesand drugs. The Agriculture office is the main source of dairy inputs and services in Shebedino district. In Dale district, private actors like cooperatives, companies, and NGOs are the main service providers. Theyplay a vital role by providing feed, veterinary drugs, animal health care, and milk processing, and serve as an important market outlet for milk and dairy products in this district. The major shortcomings of input supply and service provision in the two districts included poor support for husbandry system improvement, fragmented livestock development operations, lack of a value chain approach, inefficient and ineffective AI services, shortage in distribution of improved dairy animals and forage seed, limited private sector involvement, and poor organization of farmers for input supply and service provision.Dairy related input supply and service provision in the studied areas could be improved by organizing farmers into small and medium-scale commercial dairy enterprises through the involvement and support of private sector and national and international development partners.

Rangeland dynamics in South Omo Zone of Southern Ethiopia: Assessment of rangeland condition in relation to altitude and Grazing types
Terefe, A. ; Ebro, A. ; Tessema, Z.K. - \ 2010
Livestock Research for Rural Development 22 (2010)10. - ISSN 0121-3784
A study was undertaken in Hamer and Benna-Tsemay districts of the Southern Ethiopia with the objective to determine the condition of the rangelands for grazing animals as influenced by altitude and grazing types. The rangelands in each of the study districts were stratified based on altitude and grazing types. In the study districts, a total of 32, 3, 2, 7 and 29 species of grasses, legumes, sedges, other herbaceous plants and woody species were identified, respectively. The common and/or dominant grass species in the enclosures was Cenchrus ciliaris while in the communal grazing areas they were Cynodon dactylon and Tetrapogon tennulis. In riverside grazing areas, the common and/or dominant grass species was Cynodon dactylon. The total grass biomass of communal, riverside and enclosure areas found in the different altitude categories of the study districts ranged from 398-503; 98-626, and 1,132 – 1,209 kg/ha, respectively. The common and/or dominant woody species in the communal grazing areas were highly palatable species of Acacia tortilis and Grewia bicolor and less palatable Solanum species. In riverside grazing areas, the common and/or dominant woody plants were species of Acacia tortilis, Grewia bicolor, and Solanum species while in the enclosures; Acacia brevispica and Acacia tortilis were found. The woody vegetation density per hectare of communal, riverside and enclosure areas in the different altitude categories of the study districts ranged from 2,501-3,021; 2251-3,021, and 201-700,wd/ha respectively which showed that the communal and riverside grazing areas were bush encroached. The range condition scores ranged from 17.87-20.38 (communal), 22-27 (riverside), 31.05-31.2 (enclosures) which were poor, fair and good condition classes, respectively. Similarly, with regard to the same variable the scored varied from 22-32.87, 19.73-31.43, 17.97-31.44 and 17.87-31.28% in altitudes >1550m, 1250-1550m, 900-1250m, and 550-900m, respectively. The result indicated the need for rangeland improvement measures in communal and riverside grazing areas, in order to attain sustainable livestock production from these areas. Establishment of community based enclosures was found to be one of the ways to improve the condition of the rangelands.
