as a family team and to plan together the further development of their agricultural activities. The program can also be used with full family teams (adults, young adults and youth) and
with other types of families, such as a widow and adult son, for example, or with polygamous families.

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

who are able to tailor the program to suit their particular community and
sustain the learnings well beyond its formal implementation. The program
