To meet increasing demands, they are facing several challenges constraining intensification of their production. This project aims to identify current breeding practices. in dairy farm practices was significantly higher (Psmallholder dairy farm productivity, a strong extension program needs to be implemented to enhance the skills and knowledge of women.

To better understand this process of intensification, a survey was carried out to characterise the production systems and the market linkages in the central highlands that supply the Nairobi milk market.   Phanchung P Dorji T Sonam K Pelden Smallholder dairy farming in Bhutan: Characteristics, constraints, and development opportunities.

Integrated with agroforestry-grassland systems, smallholder dairy farming can both provide a source of income and support environmental rehabilitation by using land to grow fodder trees and grass. This publication presents the results of a rapid appraisal study of smallholder dairy farming in the HKH carried out by ICIMOD and the International Livestock Research Institute.

A rapid appraisal study carried out by ICIMOD and ILRI in collaboration with National Partner Institutions (NPIs) in four regions in the Hindu Kush Himalaya has demonstrated the fact that promotion of market oriented smallholder dairy farming in the hills/mountains can contribute positively to improving the livelihoods of small and marginal farmers, while conserving the.

Contribution. Abstracts: This review paper analyses the changes taking place in livestock production management in mixed crop-livestock farming systems in the mid-mountain areas of the Hindu study focusses on high-pressure areas of the middle hills of Nepal and the Western Indian Himalayas.

It examines the increasing trend of smallholder dairy farming. While the development of smallholder dairy farming in Nepal's hills was achieved by replacing low-yielding cattle with high-yielding buffaloes (murras, or murrah cross-breeds); development in the Indian Himalayas, and particularly the Western Indian Himalayas, came about through the replacement of local cattle with improved cattle (Jersey or Jersey cross-breeds).

It focus on the area of the Hindu-Kush Himalayas that are under pressure. The paper describes the changes taking place in livestock population and composition in the hills and mountains of Nepal and in the Central and Western Indian Himalayas.

It examines the increasing trend of smallholder dairy farming in mountain areas and discusses up various issues related to it.

It covers scientific and technical inputs on existing dairy husbandry in Nepal among the small and semi-commercial dairy : Rupendra Chaulagain.

Thus a transition of smallholder dairy from “crop –dairy mixed farming” to “moderately intensive dairy farming” was noticed. Thus in the context of private participation and increasing demand, withdrawal of youth and transitional phase of shifting from crop-dairy mixed system to moderate intensive systems of production were noticed.

Duringa farm survey and on-farm performance monitoring were carried out on mixed farming systems in the Arsi highland of Ethiopia to characterize household resources, to determine the levels of adoption of dairy production technologies, to identify factors influencing the adoption of dairy production technologies, and to estimate milk production levels of Cited by: The smallholder dairy farmers in Kenya dominates the industry at the production level and they account for % of the milk produced [3].

In general, farmers owns two to five herds of dairy cattle which are reared on 3 to 5 acres ( to ha) of land [4,5].File Size: KB. Farmers in the HKH region are facing a challenge: how to find ways of increasing the total value (and volume) of products to meet the needs and expectations of the present and expected future population, whilst avoiding environmental degradation and ensuring that resources are maintained for future generations.
