Respiratory responses of N'Dama and Boran cattle to climatic conditions in Nigeria



Respiratory responses of N'Dama and Boran cattle to climatic conditions in Nigeria



World Review of Animal Production 13(2): 33-41



Zebu differed in their response to ambient air temperature and direct solar radiation. The latter is a factor worth consideration in selecting Zebu breeds for tropical climates. The tolerance of White Boran to heat stress of direct solar radiation is a great advantage to a ranch animal in the tropics and might qualify this breed for further expansion in Nigeria.
