Small ruminant farmers are located in marginal areas where the existing agroecosystems make it hard to incorporate new technologies. For extensive production systems, small ruminant farmers to obtain enough production prefer to increase the number of animals per flock rather than increase the yield of meat or milk per head through innovation and intensification. Innovation incorporates, in most cases, initial investment and more labor use that discourage farmers besides the fact that small ruminant products experience price markets uncertainty and excessive milk-meat processing regulations. On the other hand, conventional small ruminant production systems generally degrade natural resources, reduce biodiversity, and increase negative environmental impacts, such as water contamination and soil erosion. The overgrazing of pasture and subsequent soil erosion contributes to limited regional agricultural development.
