Vita Programmes

Livestock

Vita’s work with livestock involves the transfer of modern practical techniques of agricultural knowledge on dairy farming.
 

Together with its partners, Vita is engaged in livestock breed improvement, provision of livestock fodder and access to water, rangeland rehabilitation, providing access to veterinary services and capacity building for co-operatives, dairy farmers and local government.

Specific objectives of Vita’s actions include:

i) Improving the knowledge and management capacity of model dairy farmers through experience sharing visits to Ireland 

ii) Transfer, sharing and dissemination of new technology and knowledge to farmers through the adoption of ‘group technology circles’

iii) Transfer of practical knowledge from Irish dairy farm specialists to model small-scale and medium-scale dairy farmers and senior and junior dairy farm experts.
