This study identifies the causes of the observed differences in flock productivity in a central Malian village, in a rainfed millet agropastoral subsystem. Small ruminant productivity, management factors and socio-economic characteristics are analysed. The causes leading to the observed differences in small ruminant productivity are related to the owner's socioeconomic characteristics, to his management strategies or to preferences for one or the other small ruminant species.
