Zebu

Zebu

The Zebu cattle were originally from Indian but we now have the East African Zebu. It is small weighing on average 250-300kg. They come in variable colours but the most prominent feature is its big hump.

They are kept for meat and milk but their milk production is extremely low. The Maasais of Kenya and Tanzania keep large herds of Zebu cattle.

Zebu cattle are hardened and can survive in difficult environment. They are mostly kept in the dry savannah of Kenya and Tanzania. They mature late and this slows down growth of a herd.
