Abstract
This paper is written on the basis of a recommendation that arose from "Makueni Land Resources Information Workshop" which was held at Garden Hotel- Machakos from 13th - 17th November, 1995. The recommendation was:- "Having recognized the need for accurate data on the carrying capacity of the various soil types in the rangelands and due to scarcity of information of the same, it is recommended that a literature search be conducted to collect existing information with a view to providing approximate carrying capacity of the rangelands." The paper is thus based mainly on literature search as documented by previous authors and is not exhaustive in content. Little information is available on the relationship between soils of the rangelands and the livestock carrying capacity.
