The Yak


THE YAK (Bos grunniens) is noted for its large size, height, massive horns and fringe of long hair hanging from the gasear. In Algeria the zebu has been crossed with domestic cattle and the crosses are fertile. Cattle with zebu blood in them seem to be immune to Texas fever. The crosses also produce a good quality of beef.
