1996. 347pp. Improving goat production in the tropics: a manual for development workers By C. P. PeacockGoats play a vital role in the rural economy of many poor countries, and numerous projects have been established to encourage their development. But the extension workers employed on such projects are often untrained in goat production, and the only available textbooks are mostly very academic or irrelevant to tropical regions. Designed specifically for non-specialists, this step-by-step guide offers practical advice on goat-keeping in tropical climates, with comprehensive guidelines on how to plan and implement a goat-development programme, and carry out any practical activity associated with goats. With technical information clearly explained and a wealth of high-quality illustrations, the book will be of great value to field-workers, to government and NGO planners and managers, and to teachers and students of livestock development. Published in association with FARM-Africa.
