Abstract
One hopes it will be long before the working ox disappears from Africa. He is useful for so many jobs on the farm which would be costly if done by mechanical transport. His food is cheap and his very presence on the land helps its fertility. If the waste products of the farm are collected he will tread them into farmyard manure or prepare them for composting. It has been claimed that, with the aid of one ox as much as 12 tons of compost can be made every year under suitable conditions.
