Beef cattle breeding in Botswana with particular reference to the establishment of the Ministry of Agriculture's research programme in 1970



1st World Congress on Genetics applied to Livestock Production, 7-11 October 1974-2 Round tables: 231-236



The establishment in 1970 of a beef cattle breeding research programme under the semi-arid and extensive grazing conditions of Botswana is described. The aims were as follows: to evaluate, through performance testing, the 3 main cattle types, Tswana, Africander and Tuli; to set up performance testing facilities so that stock sold to farmers from Government stations would be of superior quality; and to investigate the exploitation of heterosis through crossbreeding.
