Cattle stand in the crush ready for bleeding and weighing

In Ethiopia's Ghibe valley, ILRI-led Tsetse Fly control methods have allowed cattle to flourish in an area previously almost uninhabitable for them. This has encouragd more farming in the area, relieving to a degree population and soil erosion pressures in higher, Tsetse free, elevations. At the upper Ghibe ILRI station, cattle in the control herd are monitored monthly for trypanotolerance in different breeds. (photo credit: ILRI/Stevie Mann)
