Abstract


Efforts in agricultural development need priority setting and the direction for
research and development in animal science concerning the use of locally available
resources. Moreover, it should be within the context of prevailing limited land
resources and poverty. Subsistence animal production systems with reference to
limited land resource and feed availability open many opportunities for interventions
of technology to increase animal productivity. Various crop-livestock production
systems (CLS) apparently are good alternative approaches to meet food security, in
which by-products and crop residues are utilized for animal production. Within the
system, nutrient recycling in conjunction with effective utilization of processed
manure and wasted feed as organic fertilizers for crop production was expected to
maintain and/or preserve crop productivity and ultimately save the global
environment
