Agroforestry systems for intensifying sustainable livestock production in tropical Latin America



Agroforestry systems for intensifying sustainable livestock production in tropical Latin America



FAO Animal Production and Health Paper ( 143): 1-13



Animal production in the Latin American tropics has developed by incomplete adaptation of temperate systems. Extensive cattle production based on grass has caused ecological damage and loss of biodiversity, and has not contributed to rural employment and development. Agroforestry systems are alternatives to intensify animal production, while promoting plant and animal biodiversity and environmental conservation. Agroforestry implies the presence of trees and shrubs.
