Nutritional management of domestic animals amidst water shortages is a complete guide that talks about the housing, feeding habit, drinking and nutritional requirements of free-ranging ruminant animals. The book documented the use of water by sheep and goats, as well as their performance and productivity under various degrees of water shortages. The potentials of small ruminants in weed control and waste management are mentioned, alongside capability of fattening the goats on dry short grasses and scrubs during the dry season, when low milk yield from dairy animals can be be a threat to financial income of farmers. The book creates awareness on goat milk and meat provision to increase availability of animal protein, and boost protein intake by people especially in developing countries being ravaged by protein under-nourishment. This book is a must-have for all: farmers, would-be goat keepers, researchers in the fields of Animal husbandry and Physiology, as well as the general public. There are data and analyses to justify scientific findings; while pictures and illustrations are included for easy reading, understanding and application by farmers and other interested people.
