About this book

Production of meat and milk in developing countries is burgeoning under increasing demand, and future increases will occur mostly in mixed crop-livestock systems, which are highly diverse and widespread throughout the tropics.

This book describes the process of intensification of crop-dairy production systems through systematic comparison of smallholders at 48 sites in 15 countries of Asia, sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America, at continent, landscape, and household level, highlighting common themes in the way that farmers manage crops, livestock and the interactions between them. Appropriate planning and policy interventions can enhance income generating opportunities for crop ruminant smallholder producers in an increasingly globalized world.
