Livestock improvement programmes should consider not only the animal but also its environment. So it is intended, albeit very briefly, to look at certain ecologic zones in both Nigeria and Ghana in which crossbreeding is most likely to succeed, to examine the cattle living at present in this ecologic niche, briefly discuss efforts made so far at its improvement through crossbreeding along with some comments as to causes why they are succeeding or failing, and finally to make suggestions for improvement. On account of the time constraint this discussion will necessarily be sketchy.
