1. Dual-purpose cattle management systems are commonly used in tropical regions, as they allow for the production of both meat and milk. These systems help farmers cope with volatile economic conditions and meet the increasing demand for animal products.

2. However, there are several limitations and challenges associated with dual-purpose cattle management in tropical conditions. These include inadequate record keeping, limited investment capacity of farmers, undefined breeding programs, challenging environmental conditions, inadequate infrastructure, poor nutritional practices, and health issues.

3. Biotechnological procedures such as artificial insemination and embryo transfer can potentially improve the efficacy of small community farmers in tropical regions. However, their effectiveness is influenced by the aforementioned limitations and challenges. The review mainly focuses on production systems located below 1000 m above sea level, as cattle raised above this altitude face different problems and shortcomings.
