The ISU Center for Sustainable Rural Livelihoods invites you to share in supporting the expansion of livestock production, improved animal health and increased animal-source foods in Kamuli District, Uganda.

Livestock is like an agricultural bank,” says Max Rothschild, Iowa State Distinguished Professor in Agriculture and M.E. Ensminger International Chair.
