Annasruh moving forward

25 Aug 2017

The first phase of the Annasruh feedlot that is situated in the Omaheke Region, 10 km west Gobabis, has been completed and offloading of the first animals using the offloading ramp, was on 28 August 2017.

Constructing the feedlot has created a number of new employment opportunities for the town and region, since Meatco is using local construction companies. Furthermore, Meatco has ensured an environmentally friendly feedlot thanks to eight boreholes that are powered either solar or windmill powered, while three reservoirs have a capacity of 11 000 cubic meters of water.

Once complete, the feedlot will increase marketing opportunities to farmers in the surrounding areas as well as ensure consistent throughput to the Meatco factory.
