The Conference therefore resolved that:
1. That government, its mandated agencies and other
stakeholders should enlighten
the public that animal products are safe, healthy a
nd contribute to the growth and
well-being of the populace. In addition, the school
feeding programme of the
Federal Government should include all animal produc
ts for the growth and mental
development of the children.
2. That government should actively promote the grow
th of small, medium and large
scale commercial ruminants (cattle, sheep and goat)
production including ranches
and pasture production ventures. In doing this issu
es related to land ownership by
individuals, tax incentives to willing investors in
ranches and carefully crafted
conflict resolution mechanisms should be clearly en
unciated to ensure sustainability
of ruminant production.
3. The Livestock Production policies of government
should be sustained and modified
gradually to prevent policy summersaults which disc
ourage investment in the
subsector.
4. Conscious effort should be made by stakeholders
in the livestock sub sector to seek
out and utilise available policy and research outpu
t to advance the industry. In this
regard, there is the need for government to deepen
the knowledge production base
of the livestock subsector through establishment of
specie based research institute
in conjunction with existing institutions in additi
on to the National Animal
Production Research Institute (NAPRI), Shika Zaria.
