Browse and Grass Grower Cooperative's Farmer-to-Farmer: Improving the Sustainability of Malian Sheep and Goat Farming Program, volunteers will train Malian sheep and goat farmers in improved nutrition, breeding, health and livestock management techniques. Volunteers will assist producer cooperatives in two regions: Koulikoro and Sikasso. These two regions have complementary strengths and would benefit from increased connections among their sheep and goat farmers. Through this coordinated effort at the production and the organizational level, Malian farmers have the potential to increase their incomes from the sale of livestock products.
