Cattle stocks in Botswana
Significant growth in cattle stocks has forced pastoralists to expand westward into the Kgalagadi, leading to vegetation loss and erosion of marginal lands. A gradual increase of cattle stock has been noted from 2002 to 2008 (Government of Botswana 2009), adding a total of 500 000 cattle to an already large national herd, as shown in this figure.
