In addition to the provision of red meat, fishes, poultries, milk, and eggs for Self-sufficiency, it also contributes to the hide & skin manufactures and offers employment opportunities to about 46% of the population of Sudan. If food security known as access to enough food for an active healthy life", and can briefly be defined as (ensured access to food enough by all people at all times for a healthy and an active life), livestock can make a major contribution.
