Test your ears: Heifer International Quiz!

But wait — do cows really moo? And what sound does an alpaca make? Or a goat? How about a pig?

It's time to find out: Can you match each animal to its sound? Even better, a generous donor has pledged to give 50 cents to Heifer International for every game played.

You might think this quiz will be easy, but we bet you'll be stumped, surprised and maybe even learn a thing or two about the life-changing animals that are the basis of our work.

This quiz is a quick and easy way to support our mission: Every game played will trigger a 50 cent donation. Plus it's really fun!

Go ahead, test your barnyard smarts by clicking on this link!

Good luck!

Affordability & Financing Models for the Smallholder Market

A playbook for enabling smallholder farmer customer uptake of products and services

June 2015, USAID and Fintrac


'Given the financing gap, and the fact that most farmer income is used to meet basic needs, businesses serving smallholder farmers must rely on innovative methods to enable customers to purchase products and services. Without doing so, companies risk having a limited market for their products and services.

There are a number of promising affordability and financing strategies available for companies to offer customers outside of traditional commercial lending. In many cases, companies can couple these strategies with product and service delivery to offer a comprehensive solution that increases customer adoption.

This playbook will assist partners in understanding the variety and viability of the strategies available to help customers afford a product or service and will help t

The business case for gender-smart solutions in the private sector

Executive briefing International Finance Cooperation (IFC)

Equality of economic opportunity between women and men drives productivity, profitability, and performance. This executive brief of IFC provides examples and figures showing how managing talent of people (men and women) in a company’s workforce and in its supply chain pays back, and how women form an interesting potential market.

Examples

How in Indonesia farmers’ coffee productivity increased by 92 percent, improving ECOM’s access to a key commodity, as a result of IFC’s partnership with ECOM Agroindustrial Corporation targeting women coffee farmers in Indonesia.

How in Nalt Enterprise, a Vietnamese garment manufacturer, staff turnover fell by one-third after the establishment of a women’s clinic and a daycare for employees’ children.

How in Papua New Guinea (were employees lose an average of 11.1 work days per year as a result of gender vi

Small Containerised Feedmill

Containerised systems are a unique, high-tech and efficient concept developed by Ottevanger Milling Engineers. A modular design with all the necessary feedmill equipment, electrical installation and process control equipment. The main components of the installation are installed and tested at our factory in the Netherlands and require a minimal installation time on site.

Ottevanger Milling Engineers offers the small containerised C3 series for up to 3 tons per hour. The C3 series can be extended into a C3-2. The C3-2 produces 2 tons pellets and 1 ton mash feed per hour. Small modular solutions are built into a 10 ft. or 20 ft. container frame. The container frame also serves as a supporting structure and is easy to install in areas with limited space.

Benefits of small containerised mills

  • All components are reliable and tested
  • Minimal installation time on site
  • Easy handling
  • Complete with support frame
  • Assembled and checked in factory before dispatch
  • Saving on civil and building costs
  • Low energy

A tool for assessing the gender-responsiveness of agribusiness initiatives

Evidence demonstrates that greater attention to addressing gender inequalities in the design and delivery of services or labour recruitment results in improved productivity and more sustainable outcomes. 

But, how to do this? Projects and companies can use the tool decribed in this blog in which Clare Bishop introduces a clear analytical tool with simple scores, spider diagrams, and comparisons, to help think through the spectrum from gender blindness to gender transformation when designing or assessing an intervention. 

The tool helps to: (i) analyse their current performance on gender-related activities at the field level and in project management; and (ii) identify future areas for action. The results of the study piloting this tool will be available in a forthcoming issue.  I found this tool in the Newsletter: What is New in inclusive business part I Click here to download this N

Prioritising climate-smart agricultural interventions at different scales

Published by Agricultural Systems, February 1st, 2017  

This special of Agricultural Systems focuses on prioritising climate-smart agricultural (CSA) interventions at different scales. Currently, there are few tools that can comprehensively evaluate the range of potential technologies and practices and their possible impacts on food production, environmental sustainability, and mitigation in any context. Therefore, what remains is the prioritization of interventions for investment and broad dissemination. There is a growing body of work by several CGIAR centres and their partners on tools and methods that can be used to prioritise CSA interventions and investments at a range of spatial and temporal scales. This special issue brings together nine papers describing a wide range of approaches and tools. One of the papers (PDF) by Notenbaert et al. describe a generic framework for evaluating and prioritising poten

Sustainable intensification in smallholder agriculture: An integrated systems research approach

Article from Routledge.com

Sustainable intensification has recently been developed and adopted as a key concept and driver for research and policy in sustainable agriculture. It includes ecological, economic and social dimensions, where food and nutrition security, gender and equity are crucial components. This book on Routledge by Ingrid Oborn, Bernard Vanlauwe, Michael Phillips, Richard Thomas, Willemien Brooijmans and Kwesi Atta-Krah, describes different aspects of systems research in agriculture in its broadest sense, where the focus is moved from farming systems to livelihoods systems and institutional innovation. Much of the work represents outputs of the three CGIAR Research Programs on Integrated Systems for the Humid Tropics, Aquatic Agricultural Systems and Dryland Systems. The chapters are based around four themes: the conceptual underpinnings of systems research; sustainable intens

Improving nutrition through biofortification: A review of evidence from HarvestPlus

Article from sciencedirect.com

This review article (PDF) in Global Food Security Journal summarizes key evidence from the HarvestPlus program on how biofortification has helped improve nutrition worldwide between 2003 and 2016. Delivery experiences in various target countries (Bangladesh, DR Congo, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia) are discussed, as well as farmer and consumer adoption. Since 2003, HarvestPlus and its partners have demonstrated that this agriculture-based method of addressing micronutrient deficiency through plant breeding can be successful. More than 20 million people in farm households in developing countries are now growing and consuming biofortified crops. The article highlights a few common themes that have emerged among successful delivery programs. First, multiplication of sufficient planting material is a crucial first step. Second, demonstration trials have be
