Research and development for livestock production in arid region

Research and development for livestock production in arid region

Arid Zone Research and Development: 357-367

A grass reserve program, improvement of natural rangeland through introduction of perennial legumes and incorporation of agro-industrial byproducts (urea, molasses, beet pulp) in the livestock feeding system are some of the improvements called for in feed and fodder resources. Studies on genetic improvement of cattle, buffalo, sheep, and goat are discussed.
