About Livestocking Blog
Livestock animals are very important to man primarily because they are the major source of protein for man, except for vegetarians. Of a truth, the demand for animal protein is rapidly increasing due to the increasing world population. Despite this increase, the number of livestock farmers we have across the globe is fewer compared to the high demand for meat by billions of people in the world. A local survey has shown that many people are interested in keeping livestock animals, but the major thing that keeps them back is the lack of knowledge on how they could go about it. A lot of them have backed out because they have lost money on the enterprise due to poor production and other related bad experience. Even some livestock farmers are on the verge of giving up owing to problems like the inability to access up-to-date livestock farming information, poor funding, sales challenges and managerial problem.
Should we fold our hands while seeing a lot of farmers backing out agriculture? Should we allow people to die of hunger as people lose interest in raising animals? Should we turn deaf ears to the cry of farmers when we know we can assist?
