This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
Associated with Projects R7798, ZC0289, ZC0304, ZC0305 and ZC0213. A
range of useful outputs have been produced to ensure that livestock
research has long-lasting benefits for those it was meant to. Part of
this work involved ensuring that the lessons already learned from small
stock research are applied in the future. To this end, workshops and
publications were used to create a vibrant network of researchers all
working in related fields. These efforts are complemented by a
decision-support tool designed and tested in Africa and Asia to support
researchers conducting nutrition studies in livestock. Manuals and text
books have also been produced for a range of audiences. Some are
designed to control worms in small ruminants, and are aimed at extension
workers and veterinarians. Others deal with wider ranging issues like
the role livestock can play in wealth creation.
