Haar TKP is 357 dae vir 12 kalwers!!  'n Volbroer van die bul, HTC 12001, is op die afgelope veiling aan Paul Mare Bonsmaras verkoop. Ek gebruik ook 'n ander volbroer, HTC 13137, tans in die kudde.

'n Ander bul wat ek tans gebruik uit my eie kudde en waaroor ek baie opgewonde is, is HTC 13026. Die bul kom uit die bul AEJ 09020 wat 'n

  Investment needed in Nigeria’s livestock sector

The poor health and welfare reputation of Nigeria’s abattoirs and meat processors has undermined the reputation of its meat sector, helping reduce exports to a derisory level.

According to the government the livestock industry accounts for about 5% of national GDP and 20% of agricultural GDP. Experts say that while the country has some of the best cattle and associated resources in Africa, international demand for its meat has been weakened by weak hygiene and welfare standards.

To show that poor performance could be improved, a model abattoir has been set up in the capital Abuja by livestock-trader Alhaji Isa Tafida Mafindi, Yerimam Muri, to demonstrate how meat quality can be improved by efficient local slaughterhouses.

The problem, he told a recent press conference in the Nigerian capital, is that livestock is often driven long distances to slaughter in Nigeria, with animals suffering, and their meat quality being poorer as a result.

According to former House of Representatives member Hon Suleiman Yelwa, owner of Subus Farm, a poultry farm in Jos, Plateau State, the major challenges facing the livestock sector were lack of capital, storage facilities, lack of reserved land for livestock farmers and frequent theft. He called on the Nigerian government to budget for storage facilities, while carving out reserved areas for the livestock sector.

The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr Akinwumi Adesina, said in April that the government planned to develop training programmes for producers, and work with industry associations to deal with challenges facing the sector. - Global Meat News

  More livestock slaughtered in Zimbabwe

The volume of livestock slaughtered in Zimbabwe increased by 8% in 2013, according to the latest Zimstat statistics. About 426 400 animals were slaughtered in 2013 – up from 394 500 a year earlier – with almost a 20% growth registered in pigs. The value of slaughtered animals grew 16% to $152 million last year from the previous year.

State-owned Cold Storage Company slaughtered about 16 400 head of cattle last year compared to 14 900 in 2012, helped by a service slaughter deal with Botswana Meat Commission. Private abattoirs slaughtered about 244 700 animals last year compared to 242 100 in 2012.

The same report also shows that milk production decreased by about 11,7% to 49,5 million litres. Intake by processors increased from 44,5 to 48,7 million litres.

Milk retailed by producers decreased from 7,2 to 5 million litres, said Zimstat. The value of milk production also dropped from $24,6 million to $22,3 million. - All Africa

  A new era for SA’s national veterinary services

National veterinary services in South Africa are at the brink of intricate developments aimed at improving the services. This follows the findings of an evaluation on Veterinary Services (VS) conducted by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) Performance of Veterinary Services evaluation team.

The report, Performance of Veterinary Services Evaluation Report, states that national disease prevention, control and eradication programmes are virtually non-existent, with the exception of foot-and-mouth disease. The report states numerous recommendations, one of which is that VS should develop a more comprehensive network of veterinarians in the field with contact with farms and animals.

  SAPPO condemns “Going the Whole Hog” campaign

The South African Pork Producers’ Organisation (SAPPO) has condemned the validity of information about the South African pig industry that is disseminated by the Going the Whole Hog (GTWH) campaign.

According to SAPPO, the organisation decided to respond to the campaign “in light of the continued dissemination of their vitriol against a legitimate and highly-regarded industry”.

Of grave concern is the assertion by the GTWH campaign that “very few consumers know that pigs in South Africa are, for the most part, the worst treated of all commercially farmed animals”.

SAPPO states that the vast majority of pig farmers in South Africa are professional and skilled farmers who run clean, humane and legitimate farms with the aim of providing the best possible product to market. - Press release
