The operation of beef cattle breeding research under semi-arid extensive conditions in Botswana



The operation of beef cattle breeding research under semi-arid extensive conditions in Botswana



The operation of beef cattle breeding research under semi arid extensive conditions in Botswana: 124



This handbook, recently received by the Bureau for review, was written with two objectives in mind. Firstly, it was designed to outline the theoretical background to the requirements in the setting up and running of a beef breeding project under semi-arid conditions. Secondly, it was hoped to provide detailed guidelines on the procudures used in breeding research for those engaged in day-to-day recording of breeding data.
