The study provides an analysis of the determining factors that influence East Java’s smallholder livestock farmers feed and fodder market participation and explain household level feed purchase prices, price formation and relationship with quality.

It would further address behavioural issues, particularly why and in what circumstances producers bought or sold fodder and feed, to better understand buyer needs.

The project was implemented over 16 months in three districts, Batu, Malang and Situbondo, which have contrasting and relevant settings in East Java, characterized by differing concentrations of cattle populations and on expected dependence on feed and fodder markets.
