Our evaluations have shown that the most effective approach to scaling out livestock technologies is to create opportunities for farmers to learn from each other. Farmers value the experience of other farmers. They can see for themselves what other farmers are doing and talk about the benefits, pitfalls and technical details.
Methods for encouraging farmer to farmer learning include producing Farmer Case Studies – on paper or as digital stories – which can be shown to groups or individuals. Farmer Cross Visits allow groups of farmers to see new techniques or enterprises at selected host farmers' sites.
