  1. I am very very convienced that this fulani herdsmen are not Nigerians with this Analysis of mine.

    Check this out:- How many times does a Cow gives birth in a Year? I think once, right? It carrys its pregnancy for 9months just like Human being and gives birth to only one calf. And it takes another 3-5 years to grow to maturity stage.

    Now, how many Cows do they kill in just 1day in Nigeria? At least let‘s say 20 Cows daily in each State. In a bigger cities like ABJ, PH & In Lagos, maybe 30-40. Just saying.

    You will discover that, the consumption rate is far higher than birth rate.

    So how come the numbers of cows isn‘t decreasing?

    Now, how many times does a Pig gives birth in a Year? Twice I think. With each birth having at least Tridecaplets or Quaducaplets (13 – 14) piglets.

    Now, remember the number of people that eats beef is far higher than pork yet with all these, Cows that gives birth to 1 calf a year is much more in number than Pigs, why?

    I presume that most of the cows we eat in Nigeria with their herdsmen that leads them are from neigbouring countries that do not have good pastures and grazing fields like Chad, Somalia and Niger.

    I take stroll…

  2. Wrong analysis. Hw many pple give birth a yr and how many pple die a yr. In 2006 nigeria population was 140million and nw 10yrs later 182million. So i can conclude that most pple in naija came frm Cameroon. Do knw knw hw many foul we eat per day, we still av dem in nigeria, i remember while serving in adamawa i saw the largest herd of cows in my life. It took them more than 45mins to cross d road. Go to d north and see reserve of cows nt this 100, 200 u see in d south

  3. We are talking about facts you are talking about abstract. How could anyone ever compare the number of cows killed everyday to the number of peole that dies everyday? Do you even know what you are saying? @ chemical.
    How many deaths do you record in your neigbourhood for the the past two weeks now? Then compare the numbers of cows killed.

  4. Am in haste…. Better still, How many deaths have you recorded in your neigbourhood for the past two weeks now, then compare that to the number of cows killed. @ Chemical.

  5. @hunter, u are just being subjective. U should av asked me hw many birth av i recorded in my neighborhood as well to show hw objective and scientific u are
