Ethics approval and consent to participate
: This study involved the use of questionnaire on household heads and cattle herds owned by the pastoralists. Samples for serology were collected from cattle in accordance with best practice guidelines to minimise contamination after verbal approval by the herders during advocacy visits, since majority of them do not possess formal education and was approved by the ethics committee. The committee also approved informed consent of participants either by signatures (for literates) or thumb-printing. This project proposal had ethical approval from the Niger State Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries Internal Research Ethics Review Committee (Ref No: NGS/MLF/RC-694).
