Improving goat meat productivity in Nigeria

Goats in Nigeria are mainly produced by smallholder farmers in low input, low yielding systems. Production and household income can be increased through interventions to increase reproduction, growth rates and animal survival.

LiveGAPS (CSIRO) have created a fact sheet summarising the results from their modelling of productivity improving interventions for small ruminants in Nigeria.
