THE EFFECT OF LAND TENURE ON COMMERCIAL LIVESTOCK PRODUCTION IN THE PEDDIE COASTAL AREA OF THE CISKEI

Economic theory suggests that privatization of open access grazing land will reduce stocking rates and promote investment in pasture quality. In this study, sample data drawn from livestock farmers in the Peddie coastal area of the Ciskei are analysed to test the relationship between land tenure arrangements, cattle sales and veld quality. The findings support the contention that private access to grazing land results in better veld quality, increased sales, and commercial livestock production. It is concluded that private access to grazing has a significant positive effect on commercial livestock production.
