Cassava Adding Value for Africa Phase II Project recently held its Annual review meeting in Lilogwe, Malawi. During the Annual meeting, member countries indicated the Livestock Value Chain as one of the markets targeted to stimulate cassava production and supply forenhanced rural livelihoods in 2016 activities.
One of the key success factors in the value chain is capacity building of the Feed Producers in cassava-based commercial feeds. Participants visited the Cassava Production and Processing Centres in Malawi and the Cassava Farmers enunciated various opportunities and the actual benefits they had derived as a result of CAVA II intervention. They eulogized CAVA II for this unequalled support.
Similarly, participants were at Ndatani Feed Mill. The C.E.O., Mr. Isaac Kazanga appreciated CAVA II for given him the required technical supports to improve his business. He stated emphatically that Ndatani made additional profit of 15-17% as the company continued to make use of CAVA II feed recipe for broiler chickens’ diets. Like Oliver Twist, Ndatani Feeds requested for the assistance of CAVA II Livestock Expert in formulation of feeds for other Animals to enhance additional profit for the Company.
Expert, Dr. Bello Kazeem in company of the Country Manager Malawi, Mr. Vito Sandifolo visited Ndatani Feeds and took the Kazanga family through formulation of different diets for Broilers, Cockerels, pullets, and Rabbits. Equally, Dr. Bello strengthened Ndatani feeds with simple feed formulation software and taught key players how to make use of the software.

However, Mr.Sandifolo, Dr. Bello and Dr. Ola Ogunyinka took the success of cassava-based diets to the Secretariat of the Malawi Poultry Association. The group met with Mr. Eric Chuma, the Technical Adviser. Mr. Chuma made it known that he believed in Cassava as replacement for Maize but requested that CAVA II should arrange to meet Malawi Bureau of Standards to facilitate and fasttrack its use in livestock feeds.

He recounted that the University attempted to carry out studies on use of cassava starch reject in broiler diets in the past but stated that the research was inconclusive.
Dr. Bello provided necessary technical advice on management of students’ population for research studies. The department was advised to break research component for each study into the following modules: Starter phase, Finisher phase, Carcass yield, Nutrient digestibility, Haematology, Serum Biochemistry and Gut morphology. The Department was encouraged to partner Ndatani Feeds for data collection and Analysis.
