Livestock Development Project

Livestock Development Project

In the early 1980s Samoa was facing a rising import bill for livestock products that constituted a serious drain on limited foreign exchange resources. The project was designed to help develop a small livestock industry, comprised mainly of pigs, poultry and goats, which was adapted to the country’s resource base and the traditions of the farming population. The local production of pork, poultry and goat meat helped increase incomes for smallholder farmers.

The project helped:

  • establish livestock breeding and fattening units run by smallholders at the village level
  • improve farmers’ livestock management capacity
  • set up a livestock market on each of the two islands
  • provide additional facilities for storing imported raw materials and equipment
  • set up a clinic, laboratory, office and transport facilities for the livestock section of the Department of Agriculture and Forestry
  • provide technical assistance to the livestock section
