Thanks to the many readers of this News Blog of the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) for your interest in ILRI’s slide presentations.
We’re a bit behind on giving you news of recent presentations by ILRI director general Jimmy Smith. So we give you below slides Smith presented last July on why we should care about the world’s ‘so-called ‘mixed’ crop-and-livestock agricultural systems.
As some of you will know, ILRI is marking its 40th anniversary this year.
Follow #ILRI40 online to keep abreast of our anniversary events, discussions and news. And please consider joining our new International Livestock Research Group on LinkedIn, where we can all keep such conversations going in future.
Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy this argument by Jimmy Smith for supporting integrated crop-livestock farming systems, which remain the backbone of smallholder agriculture, and our food systems, worldwide.
