Abstract The project; “Platform for African Dairy Genetic Gains” (ADGG) seeks to create working dairy genetic systems based on public-private partnerships that have a clear route to long-term sustainability. The program builds on the previous work to establish national Dairy Performance Recording Centers (DPRC) and digital data capture and farmer-feedback systems and platforms in Ethiopia and Tanzania. The program has three main objectives: 1. Establishing performance recording and sampling systems in Tanzania and Ethiopia. 2. Use the information and samples to develop systems to select crossbred bulls and cows of superior genetic merit for AI and natural mating 3. Pilot farmer-feedback systems that assist farmers to improve their productivity.
