Uganda - Animal husbandry
Uganda had an estimated 6.1 million head of cattle; 6.6 million goats; 1.2 million sheep; and 1.6 million hogs in 2001, as well as about 30 million chickens. Meat production in 2001 was an estimated 280,000 tons, 29% pork. The tsetse fly, which infests about 30% of Uganda, limits livestock production, and cattle rustling remains a problem. The livestock sector had been disrupted by armed rebels, but the United Nations, the European Community, Denmark, and several international development banks are contributing to its revitalization.
