DairyBISS project launches new website

The Dairy Business Information Service and Support (DairyBISS) project is a three-year project implemented by Wageningen UR and funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The DairyBISS project aims to establish a dairy business platform that initiates and monitors activities in business development, capacity building, and business information development. Proofs of concept will be introduced for technical and organizational innovations such as private farm advice, innovative housing systems, and forage production. Results will improve both business practice and long-term sustainability of the sector. Recently the new website of DairyBISS Ethiopia was launched as part of this project.
