Are we under-valuing information and knowledge from key informants? (2)

2 August, 2019

Hey Pedro,

I am glad we resonate with each other. Some knowledge may never be documented and accessed through books and journals but may only be accessed through conversations and practice. A local herbalist who is serving cattle from theileriosis (January disease) in Chirumanzu district of Zimbabwe is not being taken seriously because he has not been able to publish his knowledge. Meanwhile, government officials are busy looking for scarce foreign currency so that they import veterinary products.
