This project highlighted the importance of the donkey to the poor and outlined best practice guidelines for donkey management. A modified plough for use specifically by donkeys and lightweight cattle was developed. Information and practical techniques on alleviating constraints limiting the use of draught animals in semi-arid areas are especially useful for smallholders, extension workers and researchers.
