The project is a component of a larger campaign to enhance grasslands and pastures that was started in four zones, including Borana.

This operation has provided feed to approximately 106,000 hectares of land around the region in the last three years.

The Oromia Regional Government increased the area of fodder crops to 750,000 hectares in response to the drought of the previous year.

The goal, according to Tolera Debela, Deputy Head of the Oromia Agriculture Bureau, is to cultivate fodder crops on 7 million hectares of land and supply 7,000 superior fodder seeds throughout the plains and midlands of Oromia.

In the zone, fodder is currently being developed in five woredas, and 43,000 bales of fodder have been kept in a fodder bank for use in an emergency.
