Following veterinary restrictions imposed by South Africa on the import of weaners, the Namibian beef production sector was in need of help. To address the shortcoming of weaner production as a major agriculture activity, Meatco received financing to add value to beef by purchasing weaners from farmers and raising them to slaughterable cattle in feedlots around Namibia and to procure cattle from farmers. In the process, an additional 538 direct jobs were created, and satellite feedlots were established at Otavi and Gobabis, providing additional opportunities for farmers to sell cattle.
