Western Province Animal Draught Power Programme The Western Province Animal Draught Power Programme (WP–ADPP) supports the Agricultural Engineering Section of the Department of Agriculture (DoA), and has focused its activities on Kaoma District since Apart from trials and demonstrations on weeding and groundnut lifting, WP–ADPP. The Indigenous bovine breeds are sturdy and are endowed with quality of heat tolerance, resistance to diseases. They have ability to thrive under extreme climatic conditions and survive with low inputs. However, most of the indigenous are suited for draught animal power as they have low genetic potential for milk production. Draught animal power (DAP) is an important output from large ruminants and equids on many small-scale farms in Asia, sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. In many parts of sub-Saharan Africa, where hand-labour is the source of much of the power required for the production of food and cash crops, it is only relatively recently that animals have Cited by:

Draught animals are a major source of mobile work energy in some developing countries; in Africa their numbers are expanding. The annual efficiency with which animals convert food to useful work is however often very low (e.g. 2%) because their use in agriculture is so seasonal.

More about this item.   Note, though, that the sub-discipline in psychology that has the strongest tradition in using animal subjects, behaviorism, shares with economics the strict rejection of investigating mental process.

Draught Animal Utilisation and Research Needs A number of initiatives relating to the improved use of draught animal power resulting from this survey have had considerable impact on planning of subsequent draught animal research in Zimbabwe and elsewhere.

Background In Zimbabwe’s communal sector, arable plots are small, commonly in. A massive programme of modernisation of the draught animal power (DAP) system would alone reduce animal suffering.

Investment in draught animal power (i.e. the asset value of draught animal power systems) can be estimated at approximately US$ billion (1 billion = 1, million). For a variety of reasons, replacement of these animals by mechanised systems may take several years and may require a total investment of US$ billion, which is far beyond.

The need may be one only during high electricity demand hours (peak load) or the new power may be needed 24 hours a day (base load).

Base load is that load below which the demand never falls, that is, the base load must be supplied % of the time.
