Farmers in the Rajasthan desert depend on animal husbandry.

1. Due to very scanty, irregular and uncertain rainfall in the Rajasthan Desert, farmers cannot depend only on agriculture for their livelihood. So, a large number of farmers rear animals like sheep, goats, cows, bullocks, camels, etc. on their farms to get supplementary income.

2. Vast areas in the desert are unfit for cultivation but have pastures. Moreover, grasslands here are not transformed into cropland duo to lack of water. Babul is one of the best fodder trees here.

3. Owing to these reasons, farmers in the Rajasthan Desert depend on animal husbandry.
