Animal Production 2014

Livestock keeping and crop production can coexist very well since an integrated approach is the key to establish a closed nutrient management cycle. Fresh fish, meat, milk and honey are products which can increase the houshold income for a small scale farmer significantly. To run a livestock enterprise successfully good management practices are needed. The course gives introduction into animal health, feeding, housing and general production.
