Improved livestock husbandry
The #Khoadi //hoas conservancy actively encourages its members to revert to herding livestock as much as possible. Anatolian Shepherd dogs have been shown to be particularly effective in guarding against cheetah (Stander 2005), but have relatively high maintenance costs compared to village dogs which can also be effective.
Kraaling the cattle at night in strong enclosures is another important method of reducing predation and can be encouraged and financially supported as part of local HWC Management plans in conservancies.
Stander (2005) suggests that active management by controlling breeding times and grazing areas can lead to synchronised births, which aid the protection of cows and calves against carnivores.
