Example text

Camels are an important source of milk in some countries. There is relatively little swine production in Africa, particularly in Moslem areas. Poultry products are common in rural households and are increasingly produced in specialized units around the large cities. There are many arbitrary methods of classifying livestock production systems. We shall use the following: nomadism or total pastoralism, seminomadism or semipastoralism, sedentary pastoralism, and ranching—private, group, association, cooperative, and state.
