This study was carried out to get an appraisal of the losses occasioned by apparently high levels stock mortality at Neudamm Campus Farm, University of Namibia. Losses of beef cattle (Afrikaner, Simmental and Sanga/Nguni) and dairy cattle (Friesian) were studied from July 2003 to December 2015. A total of 106 animals worth US$55 263.12 and representing 3.5% of the animals at risk were lost during this period. In the years 2004, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2014 the cattle losses were more than 1.5% whereas in 2005, 2008, 2011 and 2015 the losses were 1.0-1.5%. The lowest losses (0.05), the female losses were significantly higher than the male losses (P0.05). There were significantly more mature animals lost from 2003 to 2009 and from 2013 to 2014 (P0.05). The losses in immature cattle was higher than those of mature cattle in 2010, 2011 and 2015 (P
