Acknowledgments

So many people have contributed to this manual that it would be impossible to thank them all individually. However, I do want to give my thanks to those reviewers who read and corrected previous drafts of the manual and to the people who gave special help during the research phase. I am especially grateful to Kelly Morris and Steve Joyce at Peace Corps and to Buckley Lye and Rob Shulman, who gave careful review of the manual and made valuable suggestions. At TransCentury I want to thank Paul Chakroff, Project Manager, for his continued support throughout the project, and Michael Costa for his review of the sections on animal health and nutrition. A very warm special thanks goes to Ben, Marcia, and Junior Ellingson for their help in giving me first-hand experience with catching bulls. Finally, I would like to thank the following people for their help in providing information for this manual: Carol and Fred Watson, Pat Wetmore, Helen Davidson, Andre Lona, Pierre Huet, Ted Bermingham, Paul Schmidt, and Mrs. Thorsnes. And a special thanks to Cade Ware for his excellent typing and layout work.
