The trypanotolerant muturu cattle breed is one of the least known cattle breed in West-Africa [10]. Its population, distribution, morphological characteristics and performance have received little.

The Regional Project on Sustainable Management of Endemic Ruminant Livestock (PROGEBE) resulted from the will of The Gambia, Guinea, Mali and Senegal to implement preservation measures for the trypanotolerant livestock (Ndama cattle, Djallonké sheep and West African dwarf goat) and its natural habitat.

Their trypanotolerance gives these breeds the unique ability to survive and in areas. Classification of trypanotolerant cattle [3].

While trypanotolerant breeds of cattle are a well recognised component of livestock production in certain areas of West and Central Africa, they represent only about 5 per cent (8 of million) of the total cattle population in the 38 countries where tsetse occur [3, 1].

The Dwarf Shorthorns represented only percent of the total cattle herd and percent of the trypanotolerant cattle population. There were an estimated million head of Zebu x N’Dama and Zebu x Shorthorn cross-breeds in the West and Central Africa region in Although active trade in trypanotolerant livestock between West and Central Africa dates back to the s, the development of such trade between Central and East Africa and between West and East Africa has been hampered to date by regulatory or phytosanitory laws governing the cross-border transportation of biological materials into East African states, particularly Kenya.

Trypanosomiasis poses a considerable constraint on livestock agricultural development in Tsetse fly infested areas of sub Saharan Africa, especially in west and central Africa.

Although a lot of information is currently available on trypanotolerance in cattle, until recently the trypanotolerant nature of small ruminants was not well known.

Trypanotolerance in small ruminants is less pronounced than in cattle and should be considered as resilience rather than resistance. West African Dwarf (WAD) goats seem to be less trypanotolerant than Djallonke by: N'Dama cattle are believed to have originated from the Fouta Djallon plateau in Guinea, and are now found in the whole of coastal West and Central Africa: Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Cote d'Ivoire, western Mali, Ghana, Togo, Nigeria, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Gabon, Congo (Brazzaville), and Democratic.
