Goats have always been considered very useful animals. Goats success is related to its excellent adaptability to the difficult mountain conditions, extreme weather and low value feed acceptance, versatile habits and high production considering their size.

Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. In addition to the direct financial benefits they provide, animals play many roles for small- holder farmers: they provide food, manure as a soil amendment or fuel , traction, a savings mechanism, and social status Randolph et al. More than half the farmers who remained poor cited funeral expenses that typically involved the slaughter of livestock.
Pastoralism is a highly traditional production system for livestock and livestock products. Under the surface of a seeming stability a variety of pressures of the modern time all seem to accumulate to put the sustainability of the pastoralist production system to the test. Population growth and growing demand for meat, put pressure on the natural resources used by pastoralists because the grazing lands that are saved from encroachment or conversion into arable lands, may be overexploited. Changing climatic conditions, such as frequent droughts, put even more pressure on the system. The scientific literature on pastoralism provides an important entry point to such fact finding. This article therefore analyzes recent research contributions to the literature on pastoralism on their inferences as to whether pastoralism is a sustainable production system for livestock-based products. The results show substantial consensus that pastoralism is seen as a sustainable production system for livestock and livestock products 78 of the studies contain sustainability inferences, of which 58 infer that the pastoral system is sustainable, while only 2 come to a negative conclusion.
Pastoralism is a form of animal husbandry where domesticated animals known as livestock are released onto large vegetated outdoor lands pastures for grazing , historically by nomadic people who moved around with their herds. The species involved include cattle , camels , goats , yaks , llamas , reindeer , horse and sheep. Pastoralism is found in many variations throughout the world, generally where environmental characteristics such as aridity, poor soils, cold or hot temperature, and lack of water make crop growing difficult or impossible. Operating in these more extreme environments with more marginal lands, mean that pastoral communities are very vulnerable to global warming. Pastoralism remains a way of life in many geographies including Africa, the Tibetan plateau , the Eurasian steppes , the Andes , Patagonia , the Pampas , Australia and many other places.

The livestock sector globally is highly dynamic. In developing countries, it is evolving in response to rapidly increasing demand for livestock products. In developed countries, demand for livestock products is stagnating, while many production systems are increasing their efficiency and environmental sustainability. Historical changes in the demand for livestock products have been largely driven by human population growth, income growth and urbanization and the production response in different livestock systems has been associated with science and technology as well as increases in animal numbers. In the future, production will increasingly be affected by competition for natural resources, particularly land and water, competition between food and feed and by the need to operate in a carbon-constrained economy. Developments in breeding, nutrition and animal health will continue to contribute to increasing potential production and further efficiency and genetic gains. Livestock production is likely to be increasingly affected by carbon constraints and environmental and animal welfare legislation.
Pastoral nomadism , one of the three general types of nomadism , a way of life of peoples who do not live continually in the same place but move cyclically or periodically. Pastoral nomads, who depend on domesticated livestock, migrate in an established territory to find pasturage for their animals. Most nomadic groups have focal sites that they occupy for considerable periods of the year. Pastoralists may depend entirely on their herds or may also hunt or gather, practice some agriculture, or trade with agricultural peoples for grain and other goods. Some seminomadic groups in Southwest Asia and North Africa cultivate crops between seasonal moves. The Kazakhs , an Asiatic Turkic-speaking people who inhabit mainly Kazakhstan and the adjacent parts of the Uighur Autonomous Region of Xinkiang in China, were traditionally pastoral nomads, dwelling year-round in portable dome-shaped tents called gers , or yurts constructed of dismountable wooden frames covered with felt. A few continue to migrate seasonally to find pasturage for their livestock, including horses, sheep, goats, cattle, and a few camels.
Pastoralism also helps limit bush fires, plays a role in natural land fertilization, and facilitates water penetration into the ground through animals' trampling of the.
Pastoral farming is one of the most important production systems in countries with dry lands. Since its existence, there have been many times when pastoral farming had a bad reputation. Today this form of agriculture is getting more popular in various countries.
Metrics details. Pastoral livelihoods are evolving rapidly. The objective of this paper is to illustrate the relationship between globalization and apparent transformations in pastoralist behaviour in recent years.
Pastoral nomadism provokes highly contrasting images. The romantic image of the nomad as a free spirit, untrammeled by the restrictions of sedentary life - such as the desert Bedouin - is strongly represented in Western literature while portraits of tall, haughty Masai leaning on their spears surrounded by cattle compete for our attention on the glossy pages of coffee table books. In some instances, nomads are sometimes seen as ignorant, lazy, overbearing, and unproductive agents waiting to destroy agricultural villages and civilized life.
