  • Excerpts from the research proposal

  • Preliminary survey observations


Objective

Objective

General

Estimate the economic values of the preferred phenotypic traits.

Specific

  • Study the methods by which economic values are attached to the phenotypic traits and the breed Horo.

  • Estimate economic values of the important phenotypic traits and the ‘breed‘.

  • Characterize the cattle market in central Ethiopia.

  • Present information and suggest procedures for CBM of the Horo Cattle.


Main research questions

Main Research Questions

  • Do farmers and consumers attach values to specific traits or the breed?

    what are the important issues considered?

  • How much does a trait contribute to the market value?

  • What are the characteristics of the cattle markets in central Ethiopia?

  • What are the main economic and market factors to establish an effective CBM?


Working hypotheses

Working Hypotheses

  • The communities have their own mechanism to differentiate a breed from another based on phenotypic traits.

  • The values of the phenotypic traits have significant association with the market value.

  • Breed is an important factor in determining the price of cattle.


Data analysis

Data Analysis

Qualitative data

Narrative analysis and discourse analysis

Recognizesthe extent to which the stories we tell provide insights aboutour experiences.

Quantitative data

To estimate the values of individual traits (breed level)

  • Ordered probit


Data analysis cont

Data Analysis cont.

To estimate the value attached to the ‘breed’ (market level)

  • Conditional logit model

    To identify determinants of cattle price (aggregate)

  • Structural-heteroskedasticity-in mean model

    Model selection

  • Focused information criterion


Expected outputs

Expected Outputs

  • Identification and analysis of the methods by which economic values are attached.

  • Development of economic values of the important phenotypic traits.

  • Understanding of the process of price determination in the cattle market.

  • Guidelines for a CBM of the Horo Cattle.


Location of the study

Location of the Study

West Shoa


Dano district

Dano District

  • One of 23 districts in the zone

  • 250 km west of Addis Ababa

  • 659 km2 wide

  • 83,000 human population (2005)

  • Mixed (crop-livestock) farming system

  • Known for its livestock population

    • 75,000 cattle, 4500 goats, 2900 sheep, and 3500 equines (2005)


Preliminary observations
