Livestock Value Chains - Afghanistan

Prime has been contracted by USAID to provide technical assistance to the Afghanistan Value Chains–Livestock (AVC-Livestock) project, which is a three-year initiative being led by United States-based firm Development Alternatives Inc.

AVC-Livestock is supporting the sustained growth of several private-sector anchor firms in the poultry, small ruminants, dairy and other livestock value chains across Afghanistan.

The aim is to, through the growth of the anchor firms, strengthen the value chains themselves, with direct benefits to thousands of rural households.

We’re bringing technical depth and resources to the initiative, in conjunction with Texas A&M University, particularly in relation to animal health and veterinarian training, nutrition, animal husbandry, extension services, food safety, processing, private sector business acumen and livestock product marketing.
