Low-Cost Livestock Farming Practices: A Manual for Extension Officers and Small-Scale Farmers

Although many valuable technologies have been developed by research institutes, they are often too expensive for small-scale farmers to adopt. The Center feels that labor-saving farming methods using locally available low-cost inputs are often better suited to small farms. This book is based on a survey carried out in 1997 on low-cost indigenous technology for livestock in Asia. The 75 items were collected from four Asian countries namely, Korea, the Philippines, Taiwan ROC, and Thailand. It is the concern of the Center to disseminate such technologies so that farmers in other parts of the region can benefit from them.
