  • Due to decline in pasture conditions, livestock feed availability, particularly for cattle and goats is especially challenging in the north of the country (livelihood zones 7 and 8). If early rains arrive in some areas, there may be a reduction in need for livestock watering. Farmers must increase purchase of agro-industrial byproducts for livestock feed, at prices 15 percent above average. This reduces their purchasing power, at a time of the year when many households rely on markets for their personal consumption.
