Safety Quality Milk Ethiopia

Titre : Enhancing safety and quality of milk in Ethiopia

Pays : Ethiopie

Durée : 03 July 2017 to 01 October 2020

Objectifs
This is a collaboration project towards a system change in dairy farming in Ethiopia, in which the dominant focus on increasing milk quantity for the growing population is strategically combined with improving milk quality – and involving women in tending animals health by using herbal remedies. The overall goal of this proposal therefore is : To enhance safety and quality of milk in Ethiopia through applied research & capacity building at four levels : * Empowering of women to get income out of herbal gardens selling herbs to improve animal health leading to production of residue-free milk, and, * Training of trainers for milk quality control, * Establishing baseline data on residues and * awareness on AMR.

Project aims to stimulate innovation by : (1) piloting the Centre of Expertise for Natural Livestock Farming (NLF) strategy to produce milk without chemical residues and (2) strengthening the capacity for milk quality control (3) empowering women to grow and process herbs for remedies to heal cattle and reduce the use of antibiotics.
