Abstract or Summary
  • A study is conducted to provide information useful to the future development of agro-pastoralists in the Kolda Region through an economic and socio-cultural analysis of the practice of stabling. Two main issues are addressed: the generation and distribution of profits and the factors related to adoption of stabling. A partial budget analysis of three stable types determined that in each case stabling provides substantial net benefits for farm households. Analysis of the distribution of costs and benefits suggests that although Sons and wives provide substantial labor inputs for the practice, it is the household head who retains control of most of the benefits. Two logit models were used to determine the factors that contribute to or inhibit adoption of stabling. The variables that were found to be significant were: the household's herd size, the number of economically active household members, access to extension information, the education level of the household head, access to credit and farm size. Interviews with women farmers suggest that women, especially female heads of households, face considerable constraints to adoption of stabling due to lack of time, lack of resources and the cultural norms.
