Livestock services for small-scale cattle holders in rural Azerbaijan
Elchin Alimardanov, Kamran Abdullayev, Cathy Rothenberger, Anna YoungBefore the break-up of the Soviet Union, veterinary and livestock services for the dairy industry had been provided by the state. Dairy farmers, no longer employed by the state, had few resources to pay for veterinary services, and their herds suffered. This paper identifies how external facilitation activities can contribute to the development of the private sector supply of veterinary, artificial insemination and other livestock-related services to address the critical constraints of a fast-growing dairy farming industry in rural areas of Azerbaijan. It discusses the role that an international NGO can play in bringing service providers and clients together without injecting subsidies into the system, thus rendering the relationships sustainable and market-driven.
