The study of the risk of the bovine trypanosomiasis in the area of framing of the PROGEBE aims to measure the impact of the exchange of the medium occurred on the various risk factors. That investigation for parasitology and entomological survey year was carried out between November 2011 and January 2012. On the whole blood samples taken, 956 were examined for the search for trypanosomes by using the technique of the buffy coat. In 29 animals that appeared very infected, 27.5% T. congolense stalemate, 72.5% by T. vivax; That is to say a total average prevalence of 2.82% was the most important observed prevalence on the websites of: 15 Tousséguéla box (prevalence=6.78%) and Manankoro, 11 cases (prevalence=4.07%). Three positive cells were recorded on the website of Madina Diassa (prevalence=1.16%). On the other hand in Sagabary, no case of infection to the trypanosomes was observed. One with 70 points and prospective buyers APPROBATION risk, 30 are positive with the flies. The most infested websites are: Sagabary 14.75 flies/trap/day and 6.4 Tousséguéla flies/trap/day. Two species of tsetse were captured: Glossina palapalis gambiensis on 4 sites and Glossina tachinoides only on the websites of Manankoro Diassa and Madina.
