Botswana Meat Commission Negotiates to Resume Live Cattle Trade with the Cold Storage Commission of Zimbabwe
The Botswana Meat Commission (BMC) has successfully negotiated to resume live trade with the Cold Storage Commission of Zimbabwe for cattle in both Zone Two C and Two D (Ngamiland area) and Zone Seven (Bobirwa area), APA can report on Friday.
A press release from the abattoir suggests that the market requirement is for male cattle weighing at least 400kg.
Cattle farmers are informed that the animals will be transacted and loaded at Makalamabedi Quarantine in the case of Ngamiland, Sefophe and Sese Quarantine for Bobirwa.
The statement indicates that since the storage commission requires these cattle from January 28, producers in both districts are requested to pledge the numbers of livestock they can deliver at the quarantines.
Following the pledge, the producers will be contacted and given delivery dates to the quarantine.
The selling of live cattle to Zimbabwe was temporarily halted due to the Zimbabwe Cold Storage Commission (CSC) falling back on payments, a confidential report of the Agricultural sector committee to the High Level Consultative Council (HLCC) revealed.
The issue has been resolved, it also pointed out.
