      Livestock systems based on uncontrolled communal grazing result in inefficient utilization of native forages and low livestock production. Forage/livestock herd simulation models are adapted to Tanzania to evaluate a case of improved technology. A hay enterprise for lactating cows, not possible with uncontrolled communal grazing, was found to increase nutritional and monetary welfare of a typical village.
