With more than 32 million cattle, Niger is definitely a country of livestock farmers. But animal healthcare in the vast countryside is often inadequate. In addition, recurring droughts lead to a chronic shortage of grain and animal feed, which causes food crises. Livestock keepers must continuously adapt to these climate quirks.
