Résumé partiel
The study with the following objectives tries to capture the impact of Livestock Revolution on small-scale producers, so that the policy makers can make possible efforts to harness the benefits of the Livestock Revolution for the small-scale producers. Proper policies related to the livestock sector can`t be made without understanding the impact of Livestock Revolution on small-scale producers. Small scale producers are the focus of this thesis. In the present study, the smallscale producers have been defined as marginal and sub-marginal farm households that own or/and cultivate less than 2.0 hectares of land. These are farmers who depend greatly on livestock for their livelihoods. They are often involved in smallscale farming systems where livestock plays a central role as a source of food, income and critical inputs for agricultural production (such as draught power and fertilising manure). Small-scale farmers/producers/holders are used interchangeably in the thesis.
