The food and hunger crisis ravaging in many countries in Africa has turned the attention to the production of indigenous livestock. A large part of the African livestock is produced by people who are pastoralists, and any attempt to increase livestock production must be based on an understanding of the pastoralist way of life, and the often unexpected reactions to uniformed government policies. This study covers the Fulbe pastoralists of the Udubo Grazing Reserve in Bauchi state in nothern Nigeria. The author focus is on the description of the livestock systems, and the relationship between the pastoral Fulbe and the government interventions.
