Abstract or Summary
  • This study analyzes the impact of the Poultry Extension and Training Subproject (PETS) on the village household in North Yemen. The subproject was funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development and implemented by Oregon State University The primary goal of this study was to determine the impact of the subproject by using a survey conducted among 130 village women. The questionnaire used in the survey was designed to determine changes in consumption and production, management practices and the effect of extension information. There were three major discoveries uncovered in the survey: (1) management practices were not significantly influenced by PETS personnel; (2) the project was not the only source of Golden Comet pullets; and (3) the use of egg-laying pullets did help increase egg production and consumption. A secondary goal of this study was to analyze the project design and a 1984 evaluation in order to understand how the project could have been more effective in its purpose. It was found that although the project designers used the USAID "logframe" and conducted a social soundness analysis prior to project implementation, too little research was conducted about subsistence poultry care and the role of rural women in agriculture. Success of the project was based on several unfounded assumptions which prevented the subproject from having a more positive impact on traditional poultry farmers.
