Calls for Use of Animal Feeds to Increase Livestock Production in Rwanda

15 October 2015

It is noteworthy that there is renewed appreciation by industry players of the benefits of using commercial feeds in livestock production against the backdrop of increasing competing uses of land that was hitherto used to grow animal feeds. Indeed, use of commercial feeds the News Times (2015) reported, can increase eggs production by 25% and dairy by 75%. Recent calls by the government of Rwanda for the private sector to invest in animal feeds production in Rwanda to substitute imports ‘pulled’ by demand for the commodity by farmers is indicative of an industry that is on a positive trajectory. http://www.newtimes.co.rw/
