The identification and evaluation of disease constraints for extensive livestock production systems

  • S. N. H. Putt (a1) and J. D. Hanks (a1)


The types of constraint caused by disease on extensive livestock production systems are described. Various approaches by which these constraints may be identified, quantified and evaluated are proposed and the advantages and disadvantages inherent in these different approaches are discussed.
