The main aim of this review is to sum up innovation and extension approaches in Ethiopian livestock sector. Livestock sector holds large share of contribution to the economy and overall food production by increasing crop productivity through manure and animal traction power supply. Although livestock has a vital role in the household and national economy, its current contribution is below the potential due to various factors. Integrating livestock sector development into the circular bio-economy can be enhanced by increasing not only the food products and direct services from livestock but also share of by-products and wastes that human being could not utilize directly by recycling and treating. In the era of knowledge based economy precision livestock farming (PLF) is found to be the most powerful avenues for development interventions in the livestock sector in particulars as well as the national development at large amongst a number of interesting new and emerging technologies that have the potential to modernize the livestock industry. It is used to boost farm profitability, efficiency and sustainability by improving the breeding, nutritional, housing, environmental and other management aspects of various livestock species. Even though that much surpass the adoption and utilization of different livestock production innovation and technologies is pointed out as there is better progress especially in intensified and commercial farms to precisely manage the whole system of livestock production and productivity without compromising the environmental balance. The challenge and the success of farming lie in how precisely we can intensify our farming practices in the long run.
