  1. Develop modern technologies for livestock production.
  2. Develop technology packages for different categories of livestock.
  • Screening of forages with the view of selecting drought tolerant species for sustainable livestock production.
  • Assessing nutritional composition of forages for efficient utilization by ruminants.
  • Crop-livestock farming systems research.
  • Sustainable crop/pasture production strategies Forage conservation strategies for sustainable feeding of ruminants.
  • Livestock manure management and utilization.
  • Introduction of fodder banks/feed gardens to smallholder ruminant farmers in some rural communities in Ghana.
  • Animal feeding trials with various forages.
  • Effect of climate change on animal production in general and forage resource availability in particular.
  • Development of climate-smart livestock technologies and innovation.
  • Increasing guinea fowl productivity.
  • Animal traction management and animal behaviour studies
  • Amelioration of environmental stressors on physiology and productivity of livestock.
  • Improving livestock productivity under resource-poor conditions
  • Enhancement of ecological efficiency of livestock production systems across Ghana and the West African sub-region through collaborative research.
  • Developing dynamic models for pasture growth, yield and quality for the across northern and southern grassland ecological zones of Ghana to support ruminant livestock production.
  • Testing improved feeding trough for efficient feed utilization. USAID feed the future initiative, Africa RISING project Phase II.
