In developing countries, despite feed-shortages, considerable-potential exists to increase-production levels across a range of growing, lactating and beef-animals by tackling the problem of crop-residues’ feeding-value and imbalanced-nutrition. The data on improving milk-production efficiency in dairy-cattle through feeding suggests that there is considerable scope for enhancing milk-production by strategic-use of the existing forages-feed-resources. This is possible through the transfer of scientific knowledge and skills, in an easy-to use and implement-manner to the farmers and milk-producers. The aim should be to promote feeding of a ration in sufficient quantities containing nutrients essential-to lactating dairy-cattle. This review-article is therefore, outlines better approach used to improve forages feed-resources utilization and management, and to balance-rations at the doorsteps of smallholder-farmers in developing-countries, where the projected growth in income, urbanization and of human-population seeks a substantial-increased milk-and-meat production.

Keywords: Forage-Resources, Utilization-skills, Dairy-cattle, Milk-production and Food-security, sub-Saharan-Africa.
