ACIAR has funded a number of projects in PNG that have focused on developing
improved and lower cost feeding systems for smallholder semi-commercial and commercial
poultry, pig and pond fish production that maximise the use of local feed ingredients. This
research has led to, among other things, the development of concentrates for blending with
local feed ingredients for broilers, layers, pigs and tilapia; adapting the ensiling technique to
make sweetpotato and cassava silage to feed pigs; and the introduction of mini feed mills to
enhance feed processing and manufacturing.
This monograph provides details of this research and its outcomes.
