Reports a study of the interaction between trypanosome infections and physiological status on health and productivity in N'Dama cattle managed under traditional husbandry practices in The Gambia. Discusses production environments and herd management, parasite kinetics, erythropoietic response and body weight changes. Examines trypanosome prevalence in cows of different physiological status during exposure to seasonally high challenge of tsetse flies, PCV (Packed Cell Volume) of cows of different physiological status, infected or uninfected with trypanosomes during exposure to seasonally high challenge of tsetse flies.
