The LiveGAPS team have released a new app to compare nutrient production of livestock by farm size for Tanzania, Nigeria and Ethiopia.

With this app, you can visualise the quantity of different nutrients, for example protein, that is produced by livestock from farms of different sizes.

We find that small farms (<20 ha) produce the majority of protein for Tanzania, Nigeria and Ethiopia, with very small farms (<2 ha) contributing a considerable amount of protein.

Check out the nutrient production app on our LiveGAPS website.
