 Crossbreeding of temperate breeds with local cattle has been practiced for several decades in the country to improve the production and productivity of local animals. However, the interventions made so far were limited to highland agro-ecologies and partly in midlands. There is no improved dairy cattle technological options in Ethiopia for lowland agro-ecologies particularly for heat stress zones. Thus, this project was initiated between the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA) and EIAR to provide alternativetechnological options for dairy farmers found in lowlands of the country. Through this project, 1) high milk yielding and heat stress adapted topical breeds will be imported from Brazil; 2) Brazilian farm data recording & management tools will be adopted; 3) Guidelines on good husbandry practices will be produced; 4) a national data will be generated on the existing farm management practices, breed performance and opportunities in order to fill the information gap and identify priority research demands at grassroots level.
