An excellent way to improve house-hold income (and possibly health). However, what is being done to ensure that there is forage available through out the year? Any focus on Dairy?

Nice to see adoptive approach of livestock production. I'ld be more benefited if the artical had some light on production and feeding system followed. As we Bangladesh we also follow the similar system. However, choice of animal is an important.
