The distribution of cattle in Uganda shows marked regional contrasts. Heavy concentrations border areas almost devoid of cattle. Although disease excludes cattle from approximately one third of the land area of Uganda, the pattern over the remaining two thirds cannot be explained by reference to physical factors alone. Over southern Uganda differing cultural attitudes to cattle strongly influence the distribution, whilst to the north, the distribution of cattle reflects most strongly the pattern of human population. In parts of the country seasonal changes occur, and in other areas marked changes of a more long term nature have been recorded.
