Project final report
Improving smallholder dairy and beef profitability by enhancing farm production and value chain management in Pakistan - Final Report
This project aimed to improve the profitability of smallholder farming households in Pakistan’s Punjab and Sindh provinces, through on-farm efficiency gains and development of dairy and beef market opportunities. Increasing profit from the meat component of dairy farms is critical to address the economic viability and competitive advantage of smallholder dairy smallholder farms.
The project investigated opportunities to boost beef returns through on-farm efficiency improvements and linking smallholder families with markets, and analysed beef value chains to identify opportunities and constraints for smallholders. Farmer business groups were created and supported to enable smallholders to access more profitable beef markets.
