The types and economics of each contract for export animals are discussed and examined from the advisers' and farmers' view. The good returns in 1982 for rearing of qualifying Friesian heifers calves are indicated together with the various margins for Sahiwal options. Data is presented from a survey which has shown an adoption rate for the Sahiwal scheme of 22% with 66% of adopters continuing with it. Reasons for non-adoption are discussed, as are also industry considerations of this recent and developing market, particularly those affecting dairy processing and the domestic market for dairy heifers.
