(LUSAKATIMES) Zambia to export beef

Zambia to export beef
February 17, 2009

Zambia is to start exporting beef this year. Livestock and Fisheries Minister, Bradford Machila says measures have been set up to scale up livestock production.

He says the K70 billion allocation in this year’s budget will help scale up measures against livestock diseases.

Mr. Machila says the major hindrance in the fight against livestock disease has been insufficient funding.

He added that the Ministry has lined up a number of programmes such rehabilitation and construction of communal dip tanks.

The Livestock and Fisheries Minister says the Zambian government is in the process of setting up a livestock disease free zone.
