INTRODUCTION

Balochistan province encompasses total area of 34.8 million hectors, out of which only 7% is cultivable land. The remaining is rangeland and cultivable waste (4.6 m hectors) which provide more than 90 percent of feed requirements to the small ruminants.

Livestock contribute more than 52 percent in the GDP of the province. The local climate is highly suited for livestock raising and grazing. The recent population of livestock in the country has been reported as 20 million. Out of which 48 percent sheep and 22 percent goat of total number of country are in Balochistan.

Livestock is the single most important sector, which can make an impact at the grassroots level in eliminating the poverty, maintenance of good health in Balochistan. There are sheep and goat in every household, people are born herders and mostly depend on livestock herds for their livelihood.
