Animal Traction. Appropriate Technologies for Development. Manual M-12.
Watson, Peter R.
This manual is designed for use by Peace Corps volunteers and agricultural extension personnel working in animal traction development programs. While some of the information contained in the manual is specific to the extension of animal-powered agriculture in Africa, the principles covered are generally applicable wherever the method is being used or introduced. Examined in the individual chapters are draft animal selection, animal husbandry, the training of draft animals, yokes and harnesses, hitches, field operations and implements, economic and technical assistance, and animal traction extension. Appendixes to the guide include information on animal power, animal nutrition, disease recognition and control, workshop and spare parts inventory, animal traction instructional forms, and draft animals used in Africa. Concluding the manual are an annotated bibliography, a list of resources, and a glossary. (MN)
