Abstract
Sukumaland is about 19,500 square miles in extent and lies to the south and east of the south-eastern corner of Lake Victoria. It was estimated that in 1964 there were about 2,250,000 cattle, 719,000 sheep and 939,000 goats in the area (East African Livestock Survey, 1967). The human population is over 1.6 million and most of it derives its livelihood from arable farming. The main cash crop is cotton. Mwanza is the administrative centre of this prosperous region and lies on the shores of the Lake. The Research Station, Ukiriguru is located in a typical part of Sukumaland some 17 miles scout of Mwanza.
