Agroforestry systems for animal production in Colombia



Agroforestry systems for animal production in Colombia



Pastos y Forrajes 23(3): 235-250



Livestock grazing systems occupy most of the agricultural land in Colombia, a country with an area of 1 141 748 km2 and a population close to 40 million people. During the last 35 years, grazing land has increased from 14.6 to 35.5 million hectares, mainly at the expense of forests and crops. The cattle population is estimated as 26 million animals, which provide 44,6% of the livestock-derived GNP or 9,2% of the total GNP.
