Zimbabwe announces livestock support scheme

“The livestock support scheme is a good idea. Provided it goes to the right hands, the livestock scheme will definitely go a long way in improving the quality of beef in the country. The greatest challenge we face in our industry is finance as we need to re-stock, people also need finance for supplementary feeds so that we have healthy livestock that will provide high quality beef. The other challenge we face is training. Everyone is now a farmer, so no one is willing to teach the next man. We should therefore draw a line and decide who is who,” he told GlobalMeatNews.
