Namibian livestock farmers looking into exporting sheep bone-in cuts to Congo, Angola, Zambia, Tanzania

WINDHOEK: Namibian livestock farmers are looking into exporting sheep bone-in cuts to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Angola, Zambia and Tanzania.

According to the latest Namibia Agricultural Union (NAU) newsletter, this came to light during a recent meeting organised by the Livestock Producers Organisation (LPO).

The newsletter made reference to a representative from the Farmers’ Meat Market, Fanie du Plessis, who highlighted the profitability of other African markets for sheep exports.

Namibia exports sheep mainly to South Africa.

Du Plessis was quoted as saying that a big market exists in especially the DRC, Angola, Zambia and Tanzania, and the Farmers’ Meat Market plans further development of those markets for its products.
