      The Sheep and Goat Production Handbook for Ethiopia is the first text devoted to small ruminant production written exclusively for Ethiopian conditions by Ethiopian scientists.   In order to gain a better understanding of promising feed interventions for improvement of small ruminant production in Southwestern Nigeria, a dynamic modelling approach was used to explore the effect of different feeding strategies on the lifetime productivity of West African Dwarf (WAD) goats.

      Ruminants' mouths often smell of moist grass that is beginning to decompose. The roughly species of living ruminants include both domestic and wild species. [3] Ruminating mammals include cattle, all domesticated and wild bovines, goats, sheep, giraffes, deer, gazelles, and antelopes. [4]Missing: book. The availability and sustainability of suitable and good quality drinking water is a global concern. Such uncertainties threaten livestock production with an attendant ripple effect on food security. Small ruminants, including sheep and goats, appear to be promising to smallholder farmers in solving this problem because of their ability to survive in water-limited areas and harsh environment Author: Oluwakamisi F. Akinmoladun, Voster Muchenje, Fabian N. Fon.

      Nutrient Requirements of Small Ruminants brings together a summary of this latest data with new and expanded information on the composition of feeds commonly consumed by small ruminants, both domestic and wild. For the first time this authoritative reference .

Particular emphasis is placed on sheep and goats in mixed herds grazing dry rangelands and in small mixed farm systems in medium to high rainfall areas.

Small ruminants are in competition with commercial agriculture but complementary to subsistence production. This explains why the majority of livestock owners are older people attempting to improve their income and overcome social problems through herding livestock. Total meat produced from small ruminants in Africa was million metric tonnes (about 16% of the world total from sheep and goats).

Within Africa, sheep and goats contributed % and %, respectively, of our total meat. Total meat from African sheep and goats contributed %, respectively.Sheep, Goats, Cervids, and New World Camelids.
