This study was conducted in Rasuwa district, Nepal from 2008 to 2009 in Chauries (3 to 16 years) to analyze the transhumance effect in husbandry practices and physiological vitals. Physiological vitals were evaluated by 2×4 Factorial CRD with two levels of altitude (high3300 m and low1655 m) and four levels of age group (G1≤6 yrs, G27 to 9 yrs, G310 to 13 yrs and G4>13 yrs); information regarding husbandry practices were collected from herders (n=60) using semi-structured questionnaire… CONTINUE READING
