This study analyzed the determinants of ruminant meat demand
in Maiduguri. 150 households were randomly selected for the
study and it covered the period of May-June, 2011. The
findings show that 88% of the households were male headed,
with 39 years as the mean age, while 73% had one form of
formal education or another. The mean household size was
eight, while the mean monthly income was ₦20,825. The
multiple regression result revealed that gender, age and
educational level of household heads were insignificant
determinant of expenditure on ruminant. On the contrary,
household size and income had positive coefficients and are
significant at 1% level. The study recommends policy to
enhance the purchasing power of the poor.
