N’Dama X Jersey - cow - Côte d’Ivoire

N’Dama X Jersey

The N’Dama X Jersey is experimental and small in numbers. The idea is to combine the trypanotolerance of the N’Dama with the milk production of the Jersey. Animals with more than 3/8 Jersey blood have been found to be too weak.

Varieties of N’Dama and stabilized/fixed N’Dama crosses include:
Bambara
Djakoré
Gambian N’Dama
N’Dama Grande
N’Dama of Kaarta
Guinean N’Dama
N’Dama X Jersey
N’Gabou
Thomton (Boenca)
