Okakarara Auction Kraal procures great cattle numbers

19 May 2017

Meatco’s permit day initiative for communal areas has gained momentum.

On these days, farmers bring their cattle to a central point to be auctioned off and receive immediate cash for the animals sold.

A permit day was held at the Okakarara Auction Kraal from 10 to 12 May, where 835 head of cattle were procured – a first in the facility’s 25 years of existence.

Meatco would like to thank the farmers who responded to our call and brought cattle for marketing,” says Manager: Livestock Procurement – Communal, Patrick Liebenberg. “Their response is a clear indicator that our relationship with them is improving and that they are eager to market cattle on this platform.
