Improving milk production in East Africa faces multiple constraints, however lack of farmer understandingof the productive cows’ nutritional needs – and how to satisfy them – are frequently a “ rst-limiting”consideration. In recognition of this an intensive, four week training has been developed to improve farmer understanding and ability in this critical area. This manual forms the underlying learning material for this course and is also designed as a reference resource for all course participants.
