Strengthening Artificial Insemination to Achieve Food Security in the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste
Wednesday, 02 March 2016 08:49

Livestock has an important role in the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste (RDTL). It is not only a source of food but also the source of financial capital, source of cash income, social and culture concern and employment as well. It also provides manure and draught animal power that contribute to sustainable agriculture.

 

Livestock production in RDTL is mostly undertaken by smallholder farmers in individual family backyard and communal grazing land. Animals are raised traditionally without improved management in terms of feeding, housing, health and reproduction. Reproduction is through natural mating with older bulls since the young ones are sold. Little control of mating will aggravate the livestock production due to occurrences of infertility disease.  Animals are considered as valuable assets for farmers to cope with economic difficulties as well.

Some constraints to cattle production are as follows:

  • Low reproduction rate due to inbreeding expressed as low calving percentage,  long calving interval.
  • High mortality in calves
  • Slow growth rate of young cattle
  • Damaged and degraded grazing land due to overgrazing.
  • Diseases such as brucellosis and haemorrhagic septicaemia

Improvement of a breeding program, pasture management, as well as pasture quality are crucial to increase livestock production.
