This study focuses on the Ethio-Sudan cross-border cattle trade along the border between Sudan and the Amhara Region. It was initiated by the Integrated Livestock Development Project (ILDP) which operates in the North Gondar Zone of the Amhara Regional State. Legal and illegal livestock marketing systems are examined where small farmer exporters and traders are the major actors in the illegal cattle marketing system while medium- to large-scale licensed exporters are dominantly operating in the legal system. Some of the topics discussed are - volume of export; characterization of the system, factors contributing to the marketing system, pricing mechanism; tariff rate; marketing fee; and health certification.
