Livestock productivity in Ethiopia is much lower than the existing potential due shortages of quality feed in the country. However, according to a poster produced by scientists working for the N2Africa project of the International Livestock Research Institute, adopting grain legumes can help boost annual production with concomitant increase in grain legumes residues, including feed quality, not only improving herd health, most importantly increasing smallholder farmer incomes.
