Abstract/Summary

The chapter examines the local knowledge system implicated in the production and husbanding of livestock, and specifically in relation to the management of tick-borne diseases of cattle in rural South Africa. It critically explores the nature of both local and scientific knowledges and their complex interplay. It considers the implications of this for veterinary programmes more widely.
