Livestock

Animal Health

The Animal Health team seeks the prioritization of Animal Health (AH) constraints to inform technology development, animal health service delivery and to contribute to an animal health policy framework. We focus on improvement of productivity of livestock through identifying AH constraints in poor livestock keepers systems, develop and introduce appropriate intervention strategies with partners; inform on types of technologies needed or to be modified to fit specific livestock production system.

The key driving question will then be, if the farmer/livestock keeper invests in breeding, health or feed technologies, where are you likely to get the best outcome? The animal health goes beyond infectious diseases to other health issues that affect productivity such as herd health management – is there new knowledge or is application of existing technologies the constraint?
