Abstract
A preliminary account of the measures in progress to popularize mixed farming and improve stock-keeping methods at Ngogwe in Kyagwe County, Buganda, has already been given (Kerkham et al, 1947). No scheme of cattle improvement would be complete which did not include improved methods of disease control, and as tick-borne diseases constitute a major problem in this area the Veterinary Department constructed two dipping tanks at Ngogwe in 1946. These two tanks were opened in May, 1947, one at Kunyu and one at Bukaya and they have been under our care since that date. They have been in almost constant voluntary use by the cattle owners belonging to the Livestock Association, Ngogwe, and a note on the results achieved may be of interest.
