JOY Goat Development Programme, Uganda
To help farmers groups to breed appropriate dairy goats that are both productive and resistant to local conditions & diseases
About our Organization
JOY Goats is a department of Deliverance Church Uganda. We are based in Mbale, Uganda and work throughout Uganda and parts of neighbouring countries.
The major activity is training farmer's groups on strategies of crossbreeding so that they can establish sustainable populations of dairy goats that are productive and also tolerant to local conditions and diseases. The stategy chosen will depend on local needs, culture and physical environment.
In the long-term our aim is to develop a new breed of goat combining the productivity of exotic breeds with the disease and climate tolerance of Small East African Goats. This will be acheived by applying the principals of selective breeding to crossbred goats.
