Abstract:Discusses the potential economic value of game production in East Africa, presents some results of experiences in game cropping in Southern Africa and suggests methods for game management in Uganda. Whereas governments in East Africa have encouraged the expansion of livestock production and cattle ranche schemes usually involving high investments, the economic value of game production has been underestimated hitherto. To the A.'s opinion game production should become more profitable if game management is stimulated by way of efficient game culling (selective shooting of game to control its numbers), game ranching and game farming or domestication. Last but not least more information should be needed about the consumers' preference for game meat, the prices and costs involved in large-scale cropping project developments and the economics of beef cattle ranching developments relative to game ranching developments.
