Project Objectives

Summary Assessment of Progress to date: Production and Marketing Aspects have progressed considerably; procurement has been done generally satisfactorily; extension, A.I. services and stock farms have not performed well because of the lack of well defined farm management plans and A.I. services rehabilitation plan. Issues and Proposed Actions: Based on the last supervision mission in December 1996, the following are the main issues of the project: 1. Support to Artificial Services: - A.I. services are not performing well; - some of the equipment is worn out; - some activities are not completed; - the herd recording scheme did not achieve its objectives; 2. Stock/Demonstration Farms: - under rehabilitation and under procurement; - some equipment is inadequate; - severe problems of understocking on all 3 farms; - ownership dispute around Rubona Farm; - squatters'issue at Nshaara Farm. 3. Assistance to Dairy Corporation: - some equipment wearing out and needs replacement; - Mbarara Milk Powder Plant has been put on hold in view of the upcoming privatisation of Dairy Corporation. 4. Other Issues: i) Local Counterpart Funding fell short of projections; ii) No detailed account has been made of the use of funds from input sales; iii) no audit report and irregular progress reports; iv) no project coordinator currently; v) deadline for last disbursement expired on 31/12/95. Actions Required: It is recommended to grant a two-year extension (up to 31/12/98) in order to allow activities to be completed under the component "Support to Veterinary Services". The initially requested Farm Management Plans will have to be completed by August 31, 1997.
