Increasing Household Protein Consumption Through Minilivestock Production In Nigeria

E Barwa

Abstract


Mini-livestock production can be a major contributor of a more balanced diet for both rural and urban settlements. The attributes of mini-livestock gives it the potential of increasing household protein consumption as well as being a source of income. Mini-livestock production can be practiced in rural and urban settlements considering its small size, low-cost management requirement and low capital investment. Mini-livestock production is sustainable and can be handled conveniently by women and children. The aim of this paper is to draw out the potentials of mini-livestock production and the need to harness these potentials in increasing household animal protein consumption in rural and urban households.
