Abstract

Animal production is an important economic activity in Subsaharan Africa. It accounts for 20-25% of GDP in countries like Mauritania, Mali and Chad. However, in the humid areas of Subsaharan Africa, where forage is abundant, the livestock share of the GDP is low. This is due to the small size of...

Abstract

The study examines the impact of a tsetse campaign (1994-97) in southern Burkina Faso. In the absence of health-productivity monitoring, data were collected in cross sectional surveys to generate quantitative estimates of relevant productivity traits for cattle. The results showed a 25% increase in ...

Abstract

In order to study the epidemiology of bovine trypanosomiasis in Burkina Faso, the spatial relations between the main hosts (cattle) and tsetse flies [Glossina spp.] were investigated.
