Abstract: "Studies on nature and extent of problems faced by agro-graziers were carried out in Bhawalpur district of Southern Punjab, Pakistan during 1991. Non cooperative attitude of government departments and farmers for not allowing agro-graziers to graze their animals along canals, forests, rangelands, irrigated plantations and agricultural fields was a very common problem. Due to poverty, agro-graziers were unable to purchase costly concentrates and cultivated fodders to feed their animals. They could not buy veterinary medicines to cure their animals against different diseases. Moreover, no loan subsidy, financial assistance or credit was granted by the Government for the alleviation of poverty of agro-graziers. In addition, 30 and 35% agro-graziers in the district faced problems of shortage or non availability of forage and water, respectively."
