  • Europe has many market niches where traditional forms of production are still dominant. The geographic variety of Europe certainly stimulates the existence of diverse niches with a clear local colour and identity. Even in the age of mass production and consumption such pockets of often place-bound products have not disappeared. Rather, they are enjoying a comeback, as the public at large is increasingly looking for goods with indigenous or specific qualities.

  • It is estimated that approximately one-third of the world’s population are using groundwater for drinking purposes. Pollution of ground water due to industrial effluents is a major issue (Vasanthavigar et al., 2011). Poor groundwater quality brings negative impact to human health and plant growth. In developing countries like India, it is estimated that around 80% of all diseases are directly related to poor drinking water quality and unhygienic conditions (Olajire & Imeokparia, 2001; Vasanthavigar et al., 2011).

At the same time, affluent consumers in the industrialized world are spending their own money on healthcare approaches that fall outside what has been considered mainstream medicine. A growing body of national and international studies highlight the reality that there is exponential growth of global interest in and use of traditional (i.e. indigenous), complementary and alternative medicine (TCAM).

  • In Ethiopia, to meet the ever-increasing demand for milk, milk products and beef and thus contribute to economic growth, genetic improvement of the indigenous cattle has been proposed as one of the options. Genetic improvement of the indigenous cattle, basically focusing on crossbreeding, has been practised for the last five decades but with little success.

  • Literature reports comparing Ethiopian Boran with other indigenous Ethiopian cattle breeds indicate better growth performance for Ethiopian Boran (Table 2). Additionally, through improvement in management and selection, performance of Boran has been substantially improved. For example, the improved Boran is heavier at birth averaging 30 kg (DAGRIS 2006) and at Abernossa ranch in Ethiopia the weaning weight was estimated at 158 kg (Banjaw and Haile-Mariam 1994). This variation indicates the potential that can be exploited by within breed selection and improvement in management. ...
