Characterised by compact and small body; hard hooves; its medium-length horns grow outwards and upwards; the hump is often large and overhanging in the bull; large dewlap; coat colour is often patchy in white and black (Felius, 1995).
Maintained by the Lugwari and Lugbara tribes in the region to the west of Aru in the Kibali-Ituri district of north-eastern DR Congo and in the western part of the West Nile district of northern Uganda. Some are also found in the Yei district of southern Sudan.
The Small East African Zebu are believed to have descended from the recent introductions of zebu into Africa from Asia, and some may have ancestral linkages with cattle of the Large East African Zebu group. The breeds or strains that belong to the group of Southern Sudan Zebu are believed to have been brought south from the Nile Valley of northern Sudan two centuries ago (Rege and Tawah, 1999).
