The project aims to distribute four feed block manufacturing units (FBMU) to small and medium enterprises, farmer associations, cooperatives (GDA or SMSA), etc. UFBA have the goal of producing food blocks for marketing or consumption and contribute to the alleviation of feed deficits of ruminants during lean periods (food shortage). The use of this technology will improve and stabilize the animal production and create employment. Beneficiaries must be installed in the project intervention area: unfavorable Zone / agro pastoral system center -west (Sidi Bouzid, Kairouan, Kasserine) or favorable Zone / cereal - farming north - west (Beja, Jendouba, Kef) . To ensure proper functioning of UFBA a good selection of beneficiaries is required. It is based on the criteria to be rated on a scale from 0 (non-existent), 1 (very low or few) to 5 (very good or a lot). There is a difference between a farmer association that serves its members and a SME or a private investor, who wants to market the feed blocks.
