Abstract

The study focused on perception of peri-urban and urban farmers about mini-livestock farming in South- Western Nigeria. Specifically, the peri-urban farmers’ socio- economic characteristics, level of involvement in rearing mini-livestock, constraint associated with mini-livestock farming and farmers’ perception about mini-livestock farming were examined. One hundred and eighty-two respondents were interviewed through the use of structured interview schedule and Focus Group Discussions (FGDs). Data analysis was carried out using frequency counts, percentage, mean, standard deviation and correlation. The results of the study showed that more males were involved in mini-livestock rearing than females, while the mean age of the farmers was 46 years. Majority were literate and information sourced from fellow farmers was the most.
