The Ethiopian population will grow from present

102 to almost 190 million in the next three

decades, out of which 76 million people will live in

cities and towns vis-à-vis 19 million today. Per capita

national income, currently at USD 767 per year, will

almost double by 2050. These changes will trigger

consumption for all livestock products to increase

tremendously: between 2015 and 2050 demand for

milk and beef is estimated to grow by about 5.5

million tonnes and 0.9 million tonnes or 145 and

257 percent increase, respectively, with similar or

higher growth rates for demand of other animal

source foods.
