Abstract: The paper examines local management of mixed infection of Newcastle diseases, coccidiosis and fowl typhoid in poultry birds, and Pestes Des Petits Ruminants (PPR) in sheep and goats in the middlebelt of Nigeria, wherein smallholder farmers either lose all their livestock or sell them off as the period when the diseases are most prevalent approaches. It discusses the technical and socioeconomic viability of the AKAGA and LOKA technologies that evolved from continued experimentation with local herbs within the agroecological zone. It concluded that the options are viable and sustainable within the context of the environment and socioeconomic circumstances of the people concerned.
