RANCHING WITH WILDLIFE:
FieldDay

Talk given by Giles Prettejohn – Manager Livestock, Ol Pejeta Wildlife Conservancy (OPC),
Laikipia, Kenya.

  • Field DayIt was shown how
    Ol Pejeta, 3 1/2 years since becoming a wildlife Conservancy, is still in the forefront of the beef industry, successfully integrating the cattle operation with the wildlife and making the most of both. Giles says “Yes we have reduced our cattle numbers from 8000 to 6500, but intend to go no lower and maybe get back to7,000 max. When the tourists are here you cannot compare the 2 revenues, but the last 5 months OPC has managed to survive thanks to the cattle. It is very important to have both and we wish to demonstrate today that, with Boran cattle, it is possible to maintain quality despite competition, disease and predation from the wildlife”.

  • In fact OPC have found that cattle are a tremendous asset to the Conservancy;

      1. They help to control tick numbers - Those wildlife areas without cattle know
             about the tick populations – here they are continually cleaned up by the cattle
     
      2. The cows (see pic of typical herd formation) are used as a tool to improveField Day- Herd Formation grazing - You can turn old rank grass to highly nutritious pasture in no time.

















      3. Creating hotspots from the mobile bomas (see pic of typical BomaField Day - Boma
             construction) -
             protection from
             quadrupled lion
             population at
             night, by day –
             herder incentive
             scheme; by
             moving regularly
             creates
             fertilized
             spots which will
             turn to favoured
             grazing for
             wildlife.







  • The predators are needed to keep your ungulate populations down and the tourists love to see them!
