Draft cattle are typically found in the mixed farming systems particularly within the arid and semi-arid tropics and sub-tropics where crop-livestock interactions are common.

Also, in these regions and particularly sub-Saharan Africa, farmers face an immense challenge in keeping cattle productive, as a range of endemic parasitic and vector.
