    L'urbanisation croissante, qui est due en parti a l'exode rural, est l'un des facteurs a l'origine de la répartition inégale de la population dans les pays africains. Ce phénomène a deux caractéristiques a savoir le pourcentage faible quoique croissant de la population urbaine et le taux d'accroissement élève des populations urbaines (ainsi que de la population totale).

    Studies were conducted among pastoralists on the Borana Plateau in 1986-89. Household surveys described seasonal milk production and allocation, marketed supply of dairy products, incidence of calf morbidity and mortality and human consumption of dairy products and grain. The efficiency of butter-making was measured. Dairying among the Borana is controlled by the women. Overall, 69 percent of milk produced was used as fresh milk and the remainder was soured for direct consumption or butter processing.

    Inadequate feed supplies remain a major constraint to sustainable cattle production in general, and milk production in particular, in smallholder production systems throughout sub-Saharan Africa. In the emerging peri-urban dairy production systems in West and central Africa, for example, poor development of feed resources has invariably resulted in milk production being sustained at comparatively high feed costs, thus reducing the competitiveness of locally produced milk.

    Kenya, Eastern Africa, Africa

    Organisation of the dairy industry and the marketing system in Kenya is highlighted and marketing and pricing of milk in Kenya is discussed. The formal and the informal milk marketing subsystems are also discussed. The Kenya Cooperative Creameries Limited (KCC) handles most of the marketed milk that is not sold and consumed in the rural areas. A major role of the KCC is to receive, process and distribute fresh milk (as pasteurised milk) on a daily basis.
