Characteristics and potential of domestic and wild ruminants in Morocco






Proceedings of the International Colloquium on Tropical Animal Production for the Benefit of Man, Antwerp, Dec 17-18, 1982: 142-147

Characteristics and potential of domestic and wild ruminants in Morocco

In 1980, the cattle population numbered 4 200 000, sheep 15 000 000 and goats 8 000 000, but numbers were subsequently reduced by around 40% following a drought. 90% of cattle represent local breeds, exotics and crossbreds accounting for the remaining 10%.
