Ankole cattle pastoral production system in South Western Uganda is based on grazing without supplementary feeding or regular water availability. A stochastic simulation model was developed to determine the dynamics of pastures grazed by Ankole cattle and their Holstein Friesian crosses and to determine the carrying capacity (CC) of the livestock system. The model used the concept of rain use efficiency which relates pasture production to rainfall. The similarity between the results of the… CONTINUE READING
