Abstract
In an address to the Nutrition Society in1946, Dr. Norman Wright stated, "During the earlier stage of colonial agricultural development, over-riding emphasis was placed on plant husbandry and on the productioll1 of subsistence and cash crops, whether for food or as raw materials for industry and, except in the predominantly pastoral areas, the parallel need for the development of the livestock industry was almost entirely overlooked".(Wright, 1946). Although there has been some reorientation of outlook in East Africa during the last decade, partly due to the recognition that livestock must form an integral part of any stable farming system, and partly to increasing recognition of the nutritional needs of the indigenous people, this statemell1t is still pertinent.
