Meatco procures cattle from Geingob
27 October 2020 | Agriculture
Meatco recently procured 60 head of cattle from President Hage Geingob through its Livestock Production and Value Addition Department.
According to Meatco, Geingob is an ardent farmer and has marketed his cattle through Meatco before.
Namibian farmers are encouraged to support Meatco through animal marketing and contribute to the Growth at Home Strategy while fostering the meat marketing and processing entity to contribute to the country’s Gross Domestic Product, create employment opportunities and value-addition efforts.
“We procured top-quality slaughter animals that were in good condition,” says Meatco.
Through this marketing opportunity to Meatco, Geingob is eligible to become a Meatco producer.
“We have established a solid relationship with the president; therefore, it is guaranteed that the next time he wants to market cattle, we will be his preferred marketing slaughterhouse because he aspires to contribute to the beef-exporting industry.
“We will be in constant contact with the president’s farm management and offer technical advice whenever possible to ensure the improvement of the farming practices while safeguarding delivery of cattle that are of Meatco’s standard,” says Meatco.
President Geingob is a commercial farmer in the northern part of the country.
Meatco encourages all emerging commercial farmers to contact its offices and ultimately become Meatco producers.
