of the dairy sector, via improved feed resources, and to support dairy
processing, via better-targeted investments.
Several major projects in recent years have addressed issues in the Armenian
dairy sector, but this will be the first to address strategic development of the

economic model to demonstrate the value of improved feeding, milk production and
processing and to estimate the maximum capacity of the dairy sector in terms of
