    Default Small Ruminant Production and the Small Ruminant Genetic Resource in Tropical Africa

    Small Ruminant Production and the Small Ruminant Genetic Resource in Tropical Africa

    Description

    During the 1980s the advantages of small ruminants have become
    increasingly recognised by researchers, development workers, policy
    makers and aid agencies both on the African continent and elsewhere.
    In view of the current interest in small ruminants in Africa there is a need to
    provide a standard text on production systems, the role of goats and sheep
    in mixed-stocking guilds and mixed livestock/crop systems and on the
    indigenous genetic resource. Lack of knowledge of the types and production
    capabilities of African small ruminants encourages the belief that they are
    poor performers and that development paths should be based on the
    importation and imposition of supposedly superior "exotic" animals.
    It is hoped that this text goes some way to discountenancing this belief and
    will encourage the use of African indigenous domestic animal types in
    African development.
