Poultry is one of the fastest growing sectors in the livestock value chains and offers hope for food and nutrition security as well as economic development of communities in Africa. The sector has witnessed an increase in the development of technologies and innovations which have contributed to improved production and productivity. Africa is increasingly becoming a key player in acquiring, generating and applying knowledge to development challenges. Utilization of modern technologies and innovations for conservation of the elite breeds, feeding, distribution of superior indigenous genetic resources and value addition to poultry products, offers promise to enhanced development of the sector. The application of these technologies and innovations significantly contributes to increased production and productivity in local poultry industry. It is therefore, imperative that the capacity of all stakeholders across the value chain is enhanced to increase the uptake and utilization of the modern technologies and innovations developed for the poultry sector. Robust training is pertinent as it ultimately culminates in increased technologies transfer and adoption across Africa. This training manual will provide the information necessary for effective utilization of available technologies and innovations to improve production and productivity.
DescriptionThis training manual provides vivid pictorial and graphic illustrations which will enhance the understanding of all stakeholders across the poultry livestock value chain.
