Ethiopian ox-fattening livestock fair
The third Mieso District Livestock Fair took place in January 2010. It was organized by the West Hararghe Zonal and Mieso District office and IPMS to create interest and spread knowledge on short-term ox fattening. Pastoralists received awards from the Oromia Commissioner of Pastoral Development. Despite the then-recent draught, these animals don’t look too bad (photo credit: ILRI).
