Abstract
The direct losses from MCF in Narok are higher than in Kajiado although the greater complaints were from the latter district. On average, approximately 10 % of the herd value is lost annually as a result of MCF occurrence. The indirect costs of MCF are not a function of the incidence rate. It would seem that these costs are dependent on the initiative and priorities of the individual ranch management and the type of cattle kept. The greater costs were from those ranches practising dairy cattle rearing.
