This publication presents the results of a meeting held in
Bogor, Indonesia, 6-10 October 1986, that focused specifically on the assessment
of small ruminant production systems in South and Southeast Asia. It
considered the prevailing circumstances, the innovations, and the strategies
that are pertinent for stimulating increased productivity from goats and
sheep. The present patterns of production were examined in detail with
reference to characteristics of the small farms, existing management methods,
and nature and components of the production systems. These systems include
extensive systems, systems combining arable cropping, and systems integrated
with tree cropping. The discussion of the systems were further highlighted
by country case studies, issues and policies that considered the available
production resources, especially the genetic and feed resources available,
constraints to production, and potential means to achieve desirable improvements.
An important session was devoted to examining research methodology,
strategies for development appropriate to individual systems, and a conceptual
framework for on-farm economic analysis. Together, these discussions
enabled a definition of research protocols and the priorities for future
direction that are likely to have a major impact on productivity from small
