Description
  • Abstract

    Description: This dataset contains the responses of smallholder farmers who kept cattle, or any combination of cattle with small stock (sheep and goats) across five provinces in South Africa. The questionnaire includes questions on household demographics, source of income, livestock keeping activities and facilities and disease control measures. The aim of this study was to identify livestock farmers' knowledge, attitudes, practices and perceptions (KAPP) on primary animal healthcare with a special focus on vaccinations. The data contains 191 variables and 591 cases.

    Abstract: The study addresses a human and social development component within the Agricultural Research Council-Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute (OVI) New Generation Vaccine programme study: Livestock Vaccines Against Viral Diseases for Developing Farmers in sub-Saharan Africa. The Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute (OVI) is in the process of developing a 2-in-1 vaccine for the prevention of Lumpy Skin Disease and Rift Valley Fever. The aim of this study was to identify livestock farmers' knowledge, attitudes, practices and perceptions (KAPP) on primary animal healthcare with a special focus on vaccinations. The KAPP study is part of a series of socioeconomic studies aimed at collecting data and information outlining the environments into which the 2-in-1 vaccine will enter. Data was collected by using a stratified sampling procedure and 600 livestock farmers were sampled across five provinces in South Africa.

Sampled Universe
All smallholder livestock farmers in the five provinces: Eastern Cape, Free State, North-West, KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga.
Sampling
This study used a combination of multi-stage and stratified sampling techniques. The first stage involved the purposive selection of five provinces: Eastern Cape, Free State, North-West, KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga. This was informed by the numbers of smallholder livestock farmers, as well as historical disease outbreaks and incidence of Rift Valley Fever and Lumpy Skin disease. Based on the availability of resources (time and personnel) as well as the geographical spread of the diseases and the size of the municipality, one or two local municipalities in each district were selected. An expert opinion was solicited from the respective local veterinarians to confirm the selection of the districts as well as the villages/townships/farming communities affected by the diseases in each province. The plan was to select two villages per municipality. However, it was soon noticed that some of the villages that had reported the diseases had very few cattle-farming households. Hence, in some study sites more than two villages were selected to make up for the correspondingly low number of cattle farmers per village. The selection of villages was based on disease report information received from the local animal health technician. Preference was given to those villages that reported the highest incidence of either Rift valley fever or Lumpy Skin disease. Based on 2011 census, there is about 50563 smallholder farmers in the selected local municipalities. To determine a sample size, the study adopted a simplified formula for proportions and used the formula below: n = N/(1+N(e)2 Where, n = the sample size, N = the population size and e = the level of precision. At 5% precision level where confidence level is 95% and degree of variability is 50%, an appropriate sample size is 397. To allow for unavailability of respondents and non-response, a sample of 600 households involved in smallholder livestock farming from five provinces was targeted. A stratified proportional sampling was used to determine the sample size per local municipality in each province where more than one district was selected.
