Preface

This document is part of the study, Interaction between Livestock Production and the Environment, requested by a number of donor agencies and carried out under the supervision of FAO, World Bank, and U.S. A.I.D. The study is organized into the following nine agroecozone-production system combinations:


LGT

Livestock Grassland-based Systems in Temperate Zones and Tropical Highlands


LGH

Livestock Grassland-based Systems in Humid and Subhumid Tropics and Subtropics


LGA

Livestock Grassland-based Systems in Arid and Semiarid Tropics and Subtropics


MRT

Mixed Rainfed Systems in Temperate Zones and Tropical Highlands


MRH

Mixed Rainfed Systems in Humid and Subhumid Tropics and Subtropics


MRA

Mixed Rainfed Systems in Arid and Semiarid Tropics and Subtropics


MIT

Mixed Irrigated Systems in Temperate Zones and Tropical Highlands


MIH

Mixed Irrigated Systems in Humid and Subhumid Tropics and Subtropics


MIA

Mixed Irrigated Systems in Arid and Semiarid Tropics and Subtropics


Additionally, two landless (confined, nongrazing) livestock production systems are described:


LLM

Landless Livestock Monogastric Systems


LLR

Landless Livestock Ruminant Systems


This report is Volume I of Environmental Impact Assessment of Livestock Production in Grassland and Mixed Rainfed Systems in Temperate Zones(LGT and MRT) and grassland and mixed rainfed systems in humid and subhumid tropic and subtropics (LGH and MRH) (excluding Africa). It includes Executive Summary, Delineation of Zones- Production Systems, References, and Appendix. It was executed through contract TF/INT/599-001/DEN/AGAD of December 31, 1994, between Grazingland Management Systems, Inc. and The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations.

The report was written by:

J. Richard Conner, Agricultural and Resource Economist
Wayne T. Hamilton, Range and Livestock Management Specialist
Urs P. Kreuter, Range Economics and Policy Specialist
Dennis P. Sheehy, Range and Wildlife Ecologist
James R. Simpson, Agricultural Economist
Jerry W. Stuth, Livestock Grazing and Nutrition Specialist
