Ankole is renowned for its long-horned cattle. but since the invasion of the Kingdom by the tsetse, Glossina morsitans, at the beginning of this century east Ankole has been almost denuded of cattle with the exception of a tsetse-free pocket of open grassland at Rushozi. At the beginning of September 1965 the first cattle moved into the Ankole Ranching Scheme. This is part of the repopulation of Nyabushozi County, which in the past has been an area occupied largely by Hima pastoralists.
