Gateway to poultry production and products

Family poultry production - Social equity and assessing change

Year 2014
The video describes the characteristics of scavenge based, small scale intensive and large scale intensive poultry production systems in relation to the production environment, interactions with markets and the actors involved. The requirements for analyzing the value chains of the different systems are explained including consideration for interactions in the households, market structures and chain dynamics. Production can be directly established in one of the identified systems or by transition from a system with lower to higher intensity. The content of the video was prepared by Prof. Dr. Jonathan Rushton for Associate Poultry Advisers as part of a training programme that was organized by FAO in cooperation with IFAD. © FAO:
