This report began as a brief examination of the domesticated banteng, a little studied bovine that is an important livestock resource in eastern Indonesia. But the study expanded to include other possibly useful but obscure bovines of Asia:  the madura, gaur, mithan, kouprey, anoa, tamaraw, yak, and yakow.

This report aims to kindle awareness of their possible promise and to stimulate their introduction into projects in the world's animal research facilities.
