This paper traces the changing patterns of livestock trading and marketing among several pastoral groups: the Samburu and Maasai of Kenya, and the pastoral Fulani of Nigeria and of Niger. Each of these groups - located within the different geographical and historical contexts of east and west Africa - has had a long and varied involvement in livestock exchange outside their own communities1 8 Customary Commerce. v. markets, pastoralists are also trying to purchase animals and livestock prices therefore rise - the so-called perverse supply response.

Drawing on historical case studies of the Samburu and Maasai of Kenya and the pastoral Fulani of Nigeria and Niger from the pre-colonial period until the years following Independence, the author challenges this view, showing how different colonial livestock marketing policies have affected pastoral trade.

Livestock disease, government taxation and infrastructure impact the market system and pastoralists propensity to sell
Livestock disease, government taxation and infrastructure impact the market system and pastoralists propensity to sell. In Kenya, overgrazing and livestock off-take rates are determined in part by the political agenda relating to land rights; increased off-take was encouraged as a means of cutting down on overgrazing, but implicit to this was the prioritization of settled cultivation over the growth of herds through pastoralism. The livestock industry in Nigeria is a large scale indigenous market structure; induced by cattle tax, the Fulani pastoralists market all the animals which were not needed for private consumption.
