Speaking at the Fourth Ethiopian Fodder Roundtable hosted by ILRI on 22 June 2010, Amare Haileslassie from ILRI argues that farmers need markets for livestock and livestock products otherwise they have little incentives to adopt improved cross-bred cows nor to improve the productivity of their feed resources. "Improving the productivity, improving the efficiency of resource use, but also linking the outputs to the markets is a turning point to improve the livelihoods of the smallholders."
