The cattle populations included in the study are representative of each cattle group previously described by Rege [12] which include: Boran (Large East African zebu), Guraghe (Small East African zebu), Abigar (Sanga), Horro (Zenga), Sheko (African humpless Shorthorn).
Generally, the crosses (Sanga) are normally heavier at maturity than their humpless parental stock, but lighter than their humped parental stock [11], which was explicitly depicted in their carcass characteristics in this study.
The N'Dama originated in West Africa, descending from humpless longhorn cattle of Egypt.
