Abstract
In February, 1959, work was started on the site for the Livestock Husbandry Experimental Unit, Nakyesasa, near Namulonge, approximately 15 miles north of Kampala. Parts of the area had been cultivated but from 1948 onwards all cultivation ceased and the area was grazed irregularly and burned infrequently. In February, 1959, the area was dominated by Pennisetum purplirelim and lmperata cylindrica and was fairly typical of the rough grazing offered to cattle in this part of Buganda. The annual rainfall is about 45 inches; usually with dry periods in December February and June-July.
