About this book

This unique book is the product of a south/north, east/west collaboration, involving some 90 contributors from 25 countries. It will be invaluable to all concerned with livestock keeping and poverty alleviation in developing countries, especially lecturers, students and those working with resource-poor livestock keepers. "Livestock and Wealth Creation" is about the role of livestock in developing countries and portrays how improved husbandry practices can affect the livelihoods of livestock keepers. It emphasises ways of improving small-scale enterprises and subsistence livestock-keeping. The burgeoning 'Livestock Revolution', which is already occuring in some developing countries and foreseen to become a wider phenomenon over the next 20 years, is also considered. A gigantic increase in demand for meat and milk is predicted, with consequent opportunities for resource-poor livestock keepers to contribute and move from subsistence to market-oriented production.
