Leading Domestic Animal Specialists Discuss Ways to Improve Mongolia’s Livestock Quality

Under the Resilient Communities Program (RCP), launched early April of this year, Mercy Corps has held a consultative meeting with leading national animal experts to discuss the challenges and obstacles facing the Mongolian livestock industry and identify potential solutions to improve animal quality and strengthen capacity of rural breeding and veterinary services.

The meeting took place on 25 April 2017 in Ulaanbaatar. Total of 17 people including chiefs of Animal Husbandry Departments of Selenge and Bulgan aimags, prominent researchers and academicians from the Mongolian universities and Mercy Corps staff attended the event and discussed activities to improve quality of livestock in target area under RCP. As a result of this meeting, Mercy Corps has developed guidelines for contracting a professional team to work with herders, veterinary and breeding units to enhance their capacity and create a sustainable business model for private breeding units.

"Capacity building of livestock experts, support for private animal breeding services and combination of modern advanced technologies with our traditional practices are key to developing a competitive, profitable and export oriented animal husbandry. I am grateful that Mercy Corps is helping Mongolia develop a more effective and sustainable livestock production models by focusing on areas currently lacking any support" said Dr. Ailtgui, the animal breeding consultant, during the meeting.
