Herd dynamics of smallholder dairy in the Kenya highlands


, : Herd dynamics of smallholder dairy in the Kenya highlands. Herd dynamics of smallholder dairy in the Kenya highlands: 155 pp.

Smallholder dairy farmers in the Kenya highlands generally intensify their farming systems by integrating dairy with crop production and shifting from free-grazing to semi-zero- or zero-grazing. They consequently change the breed composition, size and structure of their herds with resultant change in herd demographic rates.
