Initial application of modelling techniques in livestock production systems under semi-arid conditions in Africa (Paper contributed to the IV World Conference on Animal Production, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 20-26 August 1978)



Initial application of modelling techniques in livestock production systems under semi-arid conditions in Africa (Paper contributed to the IV World Conference on Animal Production, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 20-26 August 1978)



Working Document, International Livestock Centre for Africa (8): 11



Two contrasting situations are described where modelling can play a positive role as an aid to research on livestock production systems in Africa. The first is characterized by the existence of detailed information on some key aspects of the system with the data composite giving an unbalanced overall view.
