Monica Katabazi is a rancher and dairy farmer from Kiruhura district. Her farm is unique in a sense because she rears only indigenous Ankole longhorn cattle, which is rare among most commercial cattle-keepers. Most commercial cattle keepers in Uganda tend to prefer the exotic cattle breeds or crossbreeds.

Katabazi says that she finds that he indigenous cattle have many advantages over the exotic breeds. For example according to her, indigenous cattle are easier to rear because they are more resistant to diseases and they can survive on little water.

Mrs Katabazi has around 200 heads of cattle and she earns about Ushs50 million annually from the sale of cattle and milk.
