WORKSHOP ON LIVESTOCK DEVELOPMENT AND MANAGEMENT
By: Agricultural and Rural Management Training Institute (ARMTI)
Jul 08 - 12 Jul, 2013
One of the national development objectives of the Federal Government of Nigeria is food security. However, this has not been achieved. For example, the annual consumption of meat and eggs per capital for Nigeria is 8.1 kg and 3.5 kg respectively. These figures are lower than the world average of 37.9 kg and 8.0 kg respectively (FAO, 2007). It is, therefore, necessary to give impetus to livestock production to enhance consumption. Presently, there are potentials for the expansion and development of the livestock sub-sector. These potentials, if exploited, will contribute immensely to the attainment of Millennium Development Goal one which is eradication of extreme poverty and hunger.
Venue: Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria
