Resource-poor small and marginal farmers and landless labourers own majority of the livestock resources. Hence sustainable development of the livestock sector would lead to more inclusive development and empowerment of women (Anonymous, ).

Women’s typical role within a livestock production system is different from regionFile Size: KB. Livestock contribute about 50% of the Agricultural GDP. In most of the rural area of the Pakistan women are actively involved in the livestock production activities.

Present study was planed to investigate the role of rural women in the livestock production in Teh. Faisalabad. A multistage random sampling method was used to collect the data form 8 villages regarding the livestock production Cited by:   Women in Livestock: In the systems of mixed farming, livestock is the one which plays an important role and is the one which supports the rural women by improving their status and the situations financially.

Most of the women are involved in the livestock. Women share equal responsibility with men in taking care of the animals which are part of livestock.

In order to highlight the actual performance of livestock production and livestock and poultry products, the study explored the relationship between agricultural GDP and livestock product output, including milk, beef, mutton, poultry meat, eggs, wool, hair, skins, hides and bones, in Pakistan over the 35 year period from to Cited by: Pakistan is endowed with diverse livestock genetic resources.

In fact it is postulated that one of the centres of animal domestication lay in this part of the world. Pakistan has a large livestock population, well adapted to the local environmental conditions.

Current population of farm animals in Pakistan Cited by:   Women comprise 41% of the world’s agricultural labor force, which rises to 78% in some countries. In Pakistan 67% women are involved in this sector. Rural areas where the source of income is mostly through agriculture comprise major part of Pakistan.

The study attempts to evaluate the growth performance of meat production from to as well as export during () in Pakistan.

Annual meat production and export data were. Pakistan is basically an agricultural country. Its rural areas and the population continue to be the mainstay of economy. Agriculture is the largest sector in the economy contributing 25 percent.

poor health and work conditions, limited access to education and control over natural resources, insecure employment and low income. Rural women have long been involved in agriculture and its allied fields. Pakistan, the focus of the project, faces the specific issues in improving the situation of rural women.

Rural livestock production encompasses all phases of the management of rural cattle, buffaloes, sheep, goat and draught animals in a scientific and desirable way according to the modern husbandry techniques. The latest innovations demand that their management should be understood correctly and should be given due importance if the production from the animals is desired [ ].
