The main diseases of N'Dama -, local and crossbred cattle in the Sous Prefecture of Agou (Togo)



The main diseases of N'Dama -, local and crossbred cattle in the Sous Prefecture of Agou (Togo)



Trypanotolerance et Production Animale (4): 28-31



In Togo, 245 N'Dama, 224 local (Borgou, Somba, Lagunaire) and 61 Crossbred (Local + Brown Swiss + German Yellow + N'Dama) cattle were observed for 22 months. During that time 253 (48%) animals became sick and 29 (5.5%) died. Trypanosomiasis was the most prevalent disease, affecting 120 (23%) cattle. Most cases were due to Trypanosoma vivax, T. brucei and T. congolense were less prevalent. 36% of the Crossbreds, 22% of the N'Dama and only 20% of the local breeds were infected.
