Subsistence farming is characterized by a mixed crop-livestock production system with rudimentary technology in small landholdings under continuous fragmentation. Livestock farming prevails in all regions of the country, including the Mountain, Hill and Terai belts, with variations based on climate, topography, and socio-economic factors.

Nepal has largely a smallholder livestock system under which farmers raise small numbers of livestock in small land holdings. 1. Introduction. Livestock systems occupy about 30 per cent of the planet's ice-free terrestrial surface area (Steinfeld et al.

) and are a significant global asset with a value of at least $ livestock sector is increasingly organized in long market chains that employ at least billion people globally and directly support the livelihoods of million poor smallholder. ‎Genetic Intensification of livestock is the increase in productivity of livestock, both terrestrial and aquatic populations, with limited increase in the amount of land devoted to livestock grazing or raising.
