    urban and peri-urban livestock keepers and the sources they use to access information in order to meet their information needs and solve their livestock keeping problems. Statement of the problem Research has shown that lack of access to information is one of the serious obstacles to development, including agricultural development. expanding urban populations (FAO, ) peri-urban and urban livestock systems were considered as special cases. The main emphasis was given to rural livestock production systems directed towards urban demand. Consequently, information on urban and peri-urban livestock production is by:

    Conversely, large-scale farming required similar conditions in terms of consumer and feed, but rely so strongly on large consumption centers that market access quantified through travel time become an inverse relationship, i.e. high numbers of farms for short travel time to the province capital or to by: 7.

    This change to the way that land is used in peri-urban areas is a cause for concern as it increases the price of land, reducing farmers’ ability to pay rising costs or expand their land holdings in order to increase profits (Gill et al. ). These peri-urban areas are also pressured with land-use conflicts. We use data from a survey of poultry producers to characterize smallholder poultry producers and their practices. We find that 88% of households in program areas raised poultry. While access to vaccination services and veterinary medicines at the village level is high, uptake of these services is limited, especially among smaller producers.

In the three districts of Kamuli, Masaka and Mukono, where the study was carried out, results of focus group discussions conducted in 35 villages showed that regardless of the setting, whether rural or peri-urban, the smallholder pig production systems are typical crop-livestock system, with high dependence on crop residues, i.e.

Globally, (peri-)urban agriculture’s contribution to climate change adaptation, mitigation and resilient food systems is increasingly recognised. Widespread consumer aversion for excess fat in pork probably provides an explanation.

The t endency for high fat deposition is known to accelerate at about 70kg live weight when nutrient conversion to fat may be considered as an economic waste (Olomu ).
