    The data/estimates of fodder production in the country vary widely. Fodder production and its utilization depend on the cropping pattern, climate, socioeconomic conditions and type of livestock. The cattle and buffaloes are normally fed on the fodder available from cultivated areas, supplemented to a small extent by harvested grasses and top feeds. IMPORTANCE OF SHEEP PRODUCTION IN NATIONAL ECONOMY. Sheep is a important livestock species of India. They contribute greatly to the agrarian economy, especially in the arid/semi-arid and mountainous areas where crop and /or dairy farming are not economical.

    The purpose of the survey was to document the current status of fodder production, conservation and marketing in the arid and semi-arid land (ASAL) Divisions of Tharaka Nithi County, Kenya. The survey covered specifically Nkondi, Igambang’ombe and Tharaka Central divisions. A sample of 74 livestock farmers selected through stratified random sampling was engaged in the study. Goats (Capra hircus) are widely distributed in Africa and Asia, and are important to the subsistence and economic livelihoods of many people in these areas. The goat feeding system among rural small holder farmers in Buyende district (Uganda) was characterised by determining the goat rearing practices, feed resources fed on by goats and availability of browse species mentioned by small holder.

    In this study, we explored two contrasting regions in Benin to investigate how agroecological and socioeconomic contexts shape the diversity and utilization of edible plants in these regions. Methods Data were collected through focus group discussions in 12 villages with four in Bassila (semi-arid Sudano-Guinean region) and eight in Boukoumbé. The book is an informative compilation of cold arid agro animal technologies and focuses mainly on research and development perspectives pertaining to high altitude regions. Though the main focus is on agro animal technologies, plentiful information exists in the book for all those engaged in research on high altitude cold arid and circumpolar.

Fodder production and its utilization by small ruminants in arid regions (FOPAR): progress report, May. is a platform for academics to share research papers. Feeding halophytes to ruminant livestock requires special precautions since the plants can impact on animal physiology and behavior.

This paper reviews the literature on utilization of halophytes and covers the main constraints to feeding halophytic plants. Factors which affect the nutritive value include palatability and intake.

Edaphoclimatic condition of the semiarid region is unfavorable for the forage production of livestock. Silage is considered a better alternative to conserve forage crops.

Ensiling is a technique for preserving forage, in which the ensiled mass is acidified under anaerobic conditions. The lactic acid bacteria present in the environment produce lactic acid, thereby making the environment acidic.

It appeared that L. leucocephala is a protein and energy-rich fodder crop that could play an important role in providing a balanced diet to small ruminants in salt-affected regions.

Such figures and trends were compatible with those reported by Youssef et al. () and Abdou et al. Water scarcity is a common phenomenon in arid and semi-arid regions, which could have tremendous effects on livestock production.

This study aimed to determine the level of water restriction that lambs fed on a pelleted diet can tolerate without compromising their production performance. A total of 24 male Najdi lambs were housed individually and randomly allocated into three equal groups.
