Abstract
This is an ongoing on-farm study aimed at improving livestock production of past ora lists in arid and semi-arid areas through evaluation, testing and improving the existing young stock management practices. Participatory rural appraisals (PRA) and surveys were conducted to collect and assess information on the current young stock (cattle and camel calves, lambs and kids) management practices. Socially and economically viable management practices will be jointly assessed with beneficiaries, tested and improved upon, in selected arid and semi-arid lands (ASAL) communities. The study is expected to yield recommendations on improved management of young stock by women and youth under ASAL conditions.
