Tricolour Roan Nguni Bull

near Rosh Pinah, Namibia

The Nguni cattle breed is indigenous to southern Africa. They are medium sized and adapted to grazing on the Highveld.
They are a hybrid of indigenous and Indian cattle and were introduced by the Bantu tribes of southern Africa from the north of the continent.
Nguni cattle are known for their fertility and resistance to diseases, and are the favourite breed amongst the indigenous Bantu people of Southern Africa (South Africa, Swaziland, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Angola).
They are characterised by their multicoloured skin, which can present many different patterns, but their noses are always black-tipped.
They are a principal form of Sanga cattle, which originated as hybrids of Zebu and humpless cattle in East Africa.
Protein analyses have shown that they are a combination of Zebu (Bos indicus) and Bos taurus, the European and indigenous African species.
