Abstract

Cattle productivity is low in East African cattle grazing systems, and uncontrolled communal grazing is a major reason. Four low-cost, improved management practices are evaluated for a representative livestock village herd in two rainfall regions in Tanzania. The four practices are a restricted breeding season, shorter weaning periods for calves, supplemental feeding of weaner calves and a sales policy of unproductive cows. (L'A.).
