Guinea - Animal husbandry

In 1998 there were an estimated 2,973,000 head of cattle, 885,000 sheep, 1,052,000 goats, 58,000 hogs, and 12,560,000 chickens. Almost all the cattle are the small humpless Ndama variety kept by the Fulani in Futa Jallon and Upper Guinea, where sheep and goats also are herded. The Ndama cattle are not susceptible to animal trypanosomiasis and, although very small, their yield in meat is good. Total meat production in 2001 was 51,600 tons.
