Transformation of the Livestock Value Chain for Agro-Industrialisation
The annual Value Chain Status Report (VCSR) provides an update on the state of key selected commodities and the progress in the development and performance of value chains in Uganda. The 2020 VCSR focuses on the livestock sub-sector value chains- beef, dairy and leather with particular attention to cattle.
This is premised because the cattle sub-sector contributes about 40 percent of livestock production value and about 7 percent of the value of agricultural output. Furthermore, these commodity value chains have a high potential for agro-industrialisation, employment creation, food security, import replacement, and higher export revenues.
