ICARDA is scaling improved sheep fattening practices in the Ethiopia by targeting youth as disseminators of improved sheep fattening technologies and practices, and facilitators of participatory learning. The review workshop held in August 2019 with key stakeholders of the project to review the progress of the sheep fattening project, outlined feed resource identification, processing and optimal utilization as a key constraint to youth groups going forward. As follow-up to this concern, youth group leaders from all the 44 groups formed in 2018 with their corresponding enumerators and NARS researchers were invited to Addis to discuss various issues around feed resources availability, seasonality, quality and utilization and its implications on improved sheep fattening performance.
