Ankole cattle at the ILRI farm

I walk past this paddock all the time, but today I noticed something special: Ankole cattle. This breed of cattle, native to East Africa, is known for its peculiarly-large horns. They’re absolutely beautiful…

I remember seeing them years ago when I was driving through Uganda. Little did I know I would come to work in the International Livestock Research Institute and be surrounded by scientists studying to understand, improve, and protect indigenous breeds of cattle like these Ankole!
