A good old push n pull One of the most complete overviews of the state-of-the-art of animal traction, Meeting the challenges of animal traction is both an excellent introduction and refresher course on the topic. Compiled largely from an encounter of the Animal Traction Network for Eastern and Southern Africa (ATNESA), with support from the British DFID, it places this ages-old technology in a modern light. Several papers examine how to integrate animal traction with contemporary participatory approaches in which the users are in control. Similarly, attention is paid to analysing environmental impact and genderising the technology. More traditional issues are not left untouched: design of appropriate equipment, development of low-cost animal carts, and feeding techniques all provide the background for some straight-talking project experiences and hints at policy formulation. It will take time to work your way through this book, but well worth the effort. The result? Fitter animals, more efficient methods, and more sustainable production and transport.
