History

Mar 1991, Gaborone (Botswana), by merger of: African Research Network for Agricultural Byproducts (ARNAB); Pasture Network for Eastern and Southern Africa (PANESA); West and Central African Animal Feed Research (WECAFNET). The merger was encouraged by International Livestock Centre for Africa (ILCA) and International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in order to rationalize research programmes on all aspects of animal feeding, thus avoiding overlaps, duplication and minimizing coordination costs. Statutes adopted by 2nd General Assembly, 9 Dec 1993, Harare (Zimbabwe). No activities reported since 2008.

Aims

Unite efforts of scientists working on all aspects of animal feeding research in enhancing animal feeding technologies generation for increasing animal production in sub-Saharan Africa; strengthen national research programmes so as to develop solutions to constraints of inadequate livestock feed supplies and poor quality feeds.

Activities

Following identification by PANESA and ARNAB of suitable genera and varieties from multi-locational screening of forage species and accessions, AFRNET studies emphasize utilization of these materials in feeding systems, leading to on-farm introduction and evaluation. Other priorities: seed production to facilitate on-farm research; continuing multi-location forage evaluation in areas such as West and Central Africa where insufficient germplasm has been screened.
