Notice: Advance-booking requests for May 2020

27 Mar 2020

Meatco is advising producers that they have until Tuesday, 31 March, to make booking requests for May.

The slaughter prices for May will be announced Friday, 27 March 2020 for producers to prepare well in advance for bookings. Booking in advance is very important as it allows for adequate capacity planning at Meatco’s Windhoek Abattoir with a maximum block slaughter capacity that is not more than 5 000 cattle,

Should bookings exceed this number substantially, Fixed Term Contract (FTC) employment, which is a temporary measure, would be required especially during this time of fighting against the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Meatco, therefore, urges producers to analyse their marketing needs and confirm bookings with Livestock Procurement’s personnel by telephone or e-mail, as soon as possible.  

Bookings and enquiries in the areas of Grootfontein, Otjiwarongo and Gobabis should be forwarded to Rivonia Omes at 0817854609. In the Windhoek area, Michelle Victor can be contacted at 081 815 3438. For the Okahandja area, contact Vekondjisa Katjivena at 081 218 0582 while Okakarara producers can contact Elvis Uanivi at 061 321 6019 as well as with the Technical Advisors (TAs).

Meatco thanks producers for their continuous support.
