06 Oct 2017

From 5 to 7 September 2017, Meatco held the first permit day at the recently completed Helena crush pen in the Otjombinde constituency.

Thanks to its world-class infrastructure, the Helena crush pen proved to be the ideal facility for cattle buyers in the area to operate from.

According to Manager: Livestock Procurement – Communal, Patrick Liebenberg, “The permit day was a huge success in that for the first time Meatco could prove that the infrastructure built in the area was aimed at providing an income for the community.

“The quality of the cattle delivered and the animal welfare adherence by the farmers was commendable and within the required regulations,” Liebenberg added.
