Pests and diseases are a major constraint to livestock production, especially in developing countries. Infected animals produce less and farmers incur enormous costs towards drugs and professional veterinary services. Management of these pests is important to raise productivity, reduce production costs and to safeguard livestock as a livelihood asset for many communities.
This page will provide links to information resources intended to benefit stakeholders in the livestock sectors of the economy. Animals to be covered include cattle, goats, poultry, sheep, pigs, camel and others.
