In Africa, milk is produced in most agricultural production systems. While there are several milk-processing plants in Africa, much of the milk produced by rural smallholders is processed on-farm using traditional technologies. It is important, therefore to consider these processes and look to possible technological interventions at this level when considering dairy development in the rural sector. The Rural dairy technology manual deals with milk processing in a rural and small-scale environment. It concentrates on traditional products or on products that are easily made, need little specialized equipment and can be easily adapted to the rural processing plant. Some background information in the areas of milk chemistry, dairy microbiology and milk and milk-product analysis is also given.
