Shilluk
(most common name)

The Shilluk is a subvariety of Nilotic Sanga found near the city of Malakal and kept by the the Shilluk — a major Luo Nilotic ethnic group of South Sudan. Their neighbors are the Dinka and the Nuer people.

Due to cattle mixing and raids, the Shilluk is not distinguishable from other cattle in the area other than supposedly having a great amount of zebu influence. The name is one of ownership, not defined breed features.
