Considering the importance of animal traction, insufficient emphasis has been given to innovative research to improve working efficiency, nutrition, or the overall productivity of draught animals; in a world increasingly conscious of environmental dangers and the need to become less reliant on fossil fuels.

(editors). Animal Traction – or “Draught Animal Power” as it is sometimes referred to – has played a most important role in the development of humankind.

It has been replaced by fossil fuel powered engines and machines, which are highly effective but in many cases less cost-effective and environment-friendly. Draught animals (DAs), in developing countries (DC), undergo unimaginable suffering in innumerable ways, such as: excessive strain and stress due to overloading, beatings and whip lashes to haul loads beyond their capacity, callosity and neck injury due to defective harnessing, lack of adequate feed and rest, etc.

A survey was undertaken on the use and management of draught animals in the Eastern Cape province. Information was elicited by means of semi‐structured interviews with 94 rural households, most of which owned livestock and were engaged in farming activities.

The majority of draught animals provide hp on a sustained basis. Taking a conservative figure of hp, the total power made available by million adult draught animals at work in developing countries is of the order of million hp. Investment in draught animal power (i.e.

• Companion animals are used for company, amusement, psychological support, extrovert display and all of the other functions that humans need to share with animals of other species.

Abstract: Animal Draught Technology is an important and useful guide to the widely scattered literature on a subject of increasing importance - over annotated items. David Gibbon has 40 years experience in agriculture and rural development research and education, in both the South and the North, with a particular interest in low external input farming and livelihood systems research.

). Draught animal technology can be aft important and viable technology for rural development. It should be one integral component of rural development and mechanization strategies. Money invested in animal power circulates within rural areas, helping in revitalizing rural.

Wildlife. Wild plants and animals suffer from droughts, even if they have some adaptations to dry conditions. In grasslands, sustained lack of rain decreases forage production, affecting herbivores, grain-eating birds, and indirectly, predators and scavengers. It is noteworthy that the development of draught animals has been included in rural energy development plans In this context the following suggestions have been made: diversify and intensify the annual use of work animal resources and ensure adequate and constant management levels.

Findings: Draught Animals in Detail: Husbandry and Use Draught animal type, amount of land owned, main sources of income and the work output for the different types of draught animals have been collated in Table 2.

Compilations of the remaining information have been summarised according to each type of animal. (ii) development of systems for producing renewable energy by: a. biodigestion of animal and human organic wastes; b. gasification of dry fibrous residues from crops grown primarily as food/feed for humans and live stock; c.

increasing use of draft animal power. Rural Development is a term that is used widely in governmental organizations and many publications regarding rural activity in all the countries around the world. This book is about Rural Development at a basic level, with the material directed towards informing children about what can drive the first phases of development.

Animals and livelihoods. In countries around the globe, animals are vital to ensuring food security for individuals, families and communities through livelihood processes (Bazeley and othersAnonPerry and GraceOkello and othersFAO ).One approach to understanding how animals and livelihoods are linked is the UK Department for International Development's.

Thus, animal powered technologies have remained relatively under-utilised and neglected by the formal research and development community and by Ministries of Agriculture and Livestock in many countries, due, in part, to the perception by many decision makers that the promotion of animal draught represents something that is regarded as backward.

More specifically, the book seeks to document the growth, ownership pattern, and regional variations of rural non-agricultural activities; to determine the extent. draught animals which account for equivalent to 18million kw. Among the draught animals the bullocks, buffaloes and camels are extensively used for draft purposes, whereas, the horses, mules/ donkeys and camels are employed as pack animals.
