Climate variability is an emerging phenomenon that is threatening dairy farming globally. The dairy-climate change dilemma in Kenya cannot be mistaken. However, extensive research into dairy farming and an understanding of the dynamics of climate variability effects is greatly lacking.The study investigated the effects of climate variability on dairy farming in Masaba North Sub-county of Nyamira County, Kenya. The main objective was to determine the effects of climate variability on dairy… 

Effect of Socio-Demographic Characteristics on Kenyan Smallholder Dairy Farmers’ Adaptive Strategies to Climate Change Effects

Climate change (CC) impedes smallholder dairy industry in Kenya. Consequently, farmers’ adaptation to CC effects would greatly determine their resilience, profitability, and sustainable contribution

Climatic Variability Impact on Wheat-Based Cropping Systems of South Asia: Adaptation and Mitigation

Climate change is now a reality, many people prefer to call it as climate variability instead of climate change, which in fact, is much more complex phenomenon from agricultural point of view. The

A conceptual framework for the economic analysis of factors influencing decision-making of small-scale farmers in animal health management.

An improved understanding of the behaviour and decision-making processes of small-scale farmers is proposed, and an urgent need exists for empirical research in this area to guide policy decisions regarding the delivery of animal health services.
