Abstract
The traditional cattle-keeping areas in Zambia are the lower rainfall parts, below 89 cm, in the south of the country where the areas used are the open Acacia/Combrelllm woodland of the plateau and the floodplains of the Zambezi and Kafue rivers. Miombo, a single storey woodland forming a thin closed canopy, is found in the higher rainfall areas. When this woodland is cleared for grazing, dense natural regeneration occurs in the form of root suckers and coppice.
