The market potential for increased small ruminant production in southwest Nigeria



The market potential for increased small ruminant production in southwest Nigeria



Sheep and goats in humid West Africa Proceedings of the Workshop on small ruminant production systems in the humid zone of West Africa, held in Ibadan, Nigeria, 23-26 January 1984: 68-74



The paper explores the market potential for increased small ruminant production within the humid zone of southwest Nigeria. It appears that current production of southern breeds is insufficient to meet demand and large numbers of animals are imported from the north. While the urban markets studied handle mainly northern breeds, the rural markets deal predominantly in southern breeds.
