After the success of its third sales period, the AgResults Tanzania Dairy Productivity Challenge Project has decided to tackle Tanzania’s fodder shortage through its promotion of private and parastatal engagement in the Fodder Incentive for the upcoming Sales Period 4.
The increased demand for hay, silage, and other dray matter coupled with unpredictable weather patterns has significantly reduced the supply of fodder in Tanzania’s coastal region and this was evidenced by the shortages of fodder in the current Tanzania Dairy Productivity Input Prize competition. To accelerate uptake of the nutrition bundle, AgResults donors instated an additional US$223k Fodder Incentive to incentivize supply-side production of dairy fodder and support market entry.
By participating in the Incentive, producers can win prize awards and help bolster the supply of fodder in the coastal area to support animal health, nutrition, and ultimately improved dairy productivity. We encourage you to apply and join us for a chance to win prizes and contribute to the development of a dairy sector in Tanzania. Should you have any questions or comments please direct them to NMrema@landolakes.org.
The deadline for receipt of applications for the Fodder Incentive, with all required signatures and certifications, is due no later than 1700 Hrs. EAT on February 3, 2023.
