African Dairy Genetic Gains
The project; “Platform for African Dairy Genetic Gains” (ADGG) seeks to create working dairy genetic systems based on public-private partnerships that have a clear route to long-term sustainability. The program builds on the previous work to establish national Dairy Performance Recording Centers (DPRC) and digital data capture and farmer-feedback systems and platforms in Ethiopia and Tanzania. The program has three main objectives
- Establishing performance recording and sampling systems in Tanzania and Ethiopia.
- Use the information and samples to develop systems to select crossbred bulls and cows of superior genetic merit for AI and natural mating
- Pilot farmer-feedback systems that assist farmers to improve their productivity.
