Projects for the development of small ruminant production, particularly sheep production, are now underway in many countries in tropical Africa. While this trend is occurring in all climatic zones, it is especially so in the humid and subhumid tropics, where disease and social and psychological factors may be major impediments to the development of cattle or pig production. There is therefore a growing need for information on sheep production in tropical regions. This book fills this need and provides a text for intermediate-level courses in animal husbandry. Much of the material presented is based on experience gained in the Ivory Coast, Togo and Cameroon, but the book will nevertheless provide a text suitable for all concerned with sheep production in the tropics.
