Livestock marketing in Kenya and Ethiopia

The last few years have witnessed a renewed interest in the export of live animals and meat from Kenya and Ethiopia. In both cases, the private sector has taken the lead in initiating or advocating for the revival of the export business, prompting the respective governments to pay attention to the potentials of livestock trade. The paper Livestock Marketing in Kenya and Ethiopia: A Review of Policies and Practice, published by the Feinstein International Center in 2008, reviews selected livestock marketing policy and some operational issues in both countries. It gives details on nine pertinent issues that are critical for the development of pastoral livestock markets.
