is the only institute to have a global mandate for livestock research. Through this research, ILRI hopes to increase productivity to meet skyrocketing demands and create sustainable agriculture for livestock farmers (Why Livestock Matter). Research Background Trypanosomosis and Trypanotolerance ‐ 6 ‐Author: K. Michalson. productivity enhancement in subsistence systems in both regions. The information and data on livestock production was extracted from books, articles in scientific journals, government statistical yearbooks, project documents, and study reports. Literature was obtained from libraries, web pages of .
For the experiment, two levels of nutrition were defined. The first one (NS) was groundnut hay (Arachis hypogea), which is the common traditional feed, given ad second one (S) was groundnut hay ad libitum and 2 kg/day of a concentrate mixture composed of 50% rice bran and 50% groundnut cake. The hay was offered twice daily in amounts to ensure 10 to 20% refusals, to ensure constant. Downloadable! The urgent need to improve livestock productivity in sub-Saharan Africa in order to keep pace with expected increases in demand for meat and milk is very topical. Breed improvement provides key entry points for increasing productivity in cattle populations. However, there are tendencies for breed improvement programs to focus on single, market driven traits such as milk or .

Studies have been made in two main areas of genetic research on African trypanotolerant (N'Dama) cattle. The first is of the significance for performance and the heritability of trypanotolerance traits and the second is the search for markers of the breed type and the traits of by: ITC increases livestock productivity in West Africa, says Agric Minister.

Livestock is commonly defined as domesticated animals raised in an agricultural setting to produce labor and commodities such as meat, eggs, milk, fur, leather, and term is sometimes used to refer solely to those that are bred for consumption, while other times it refers only to farmed ruminants, such as cattle and goats.

In this development, the transfer of computer systems and software to the application has made an important contribution. Technologic instruments made farmers can work more comfortable and increased animal production efficiency and profitability.
Therefore, technologic developments are the main research area for animal productivity and : Serap Göncü, Cahit Güngör.
