This paper deals with a small section of the Fulani who migrated from Sokoto state in Northern Nigeria during the drought of 1972/1973 and settled in Borgu District of Kwara state in the buffer zone between Guinea savannah and the sub-humid zone.  It intends to assess the interaction between Fulani pastoralists and the various agents of change and their ability to adapt themselves to the new career patterns emanating from the recent processes of socio-economic and ecological change.  The prime interest is to examine the conflicts between the objectives of pastoral production, on one hand, and pastoral development projects, on the other.
