Description "The study was conducted in Fogera woreda which is one of the districts found in
Northwestern of the Amharan region with the aim of Characterization of cattle milk
and meat production systems of the woreda, to provide the basis for cattle development
interventions. Even though the known indigenous Fogera breed is also found in this
woreda little attention has been given to characterize the milk and meat production
systems, to assess the production inputs, to identify the dairy products and beef market
chain participants and to identify the main constraints and outline the interventions, it
is due to this understanding that the present study was initiated. Twelve sample
peasant associations were randomly selected (five from Fogera plain and seven
outside of the plain) based on the potentiality of milk and meat production. 480
respondents participated of the study. Different survey techniques; namely focus group
discussion, data collection by developing formats, persosnel observations and
administration of semi-structured questionnaires on milk and meat production
practices were employed. Findings of focus group discussions revealed that the types
of cattle husbandry practices of the respective study sites (PAs) were different between
rural and urban areas. Findings from the semi-structured interviews revealed that
98.75 % of cattle milk and meat productions were undertaken by indigenous cattle
breeds. The type of husbandry practice was traditional".
