Smallholder dairy development can be a catalyst to agriculture-led economic development given its
possible contribution to household nutrition and incomes. In Uganda, however, development of this subsector
remains constrained by limited availability and access to quality feeds especially during dry
seasons. Although fodder trees and shrubs have potential for enhancing feed availability on farms and
subsequently boosting milk production, their use among smallholder farmers is still low.
