Pair-wise and Line Animal-ranking Determinations of Farmer Attitudes and Farmer-Imposed Production Constraints

Information on farmer attitudes towards categories of livestock and farmer -imposed production constraints was elicited using pair-wise and line animal-ranking in a community in Honduras. Reasons for preference were elicited and gender differentiation in livestock preference were found to be minimal. The techniques used were evaluated, and pair-wise ranking was found to produce the most extensive and reliable information about perceived production constraints and the value of the animals.
