Outlines reasons for the difference between the higher growth rates of Boran calves under ranching conditions as compared to pastoral systems, viz. higher milk offtake by pastoralists, restricted suckling methods used which also reduced milk yield of the dam and the lack of readily available water sources in Borana, Ethiopia resulting in diversion of energy from production to maintenance and reduction of time available for full voluntary food intake.
