      Farming systems exist in landscapes made up of soils, slopes, streams, and lakes and adjacent ecosystems such as wetlands, forests, and riparian areas (the areas adjacent to rivers, lakes, and streams).

Kakamega district in Western Kenya represents the smallholder farming systems typical for much of the densely populated humid highlands in East Africa. A specific feature, however, is the presence of a protected forest reserve (Kakamega Forest National Park), covering some 20% of the district area.

      Modeling included field, farm, and landscape levels. We simulated different scenarios, where two livestock farming systems, swine and dairy, were combined in different proportions (i.e. number of swine vs. dairy farms) in two agricultural landscapes with varied hedgerow densities.
