However, the total product from small ruminants increased in developing countries because their numbers increased. This indicates that if developing countries could increase herd productivity, they could increase production. However, to increase production in developing countries, existing constraints must be surmounted. There are three types of constraints to increasing sheep and goat production: biological, economical, and cultural. This paper will discuss some economic factors that have affected the efficiency of production, document select cases, and offer some solutions to the problemsSubject(s): OVINOS | CAPRINOS | PAISES EN DESARROLLO | PRODUCTIVIDAD | FACTORES LIMITANTES | ASPECTOS ECONOMICOS
