President Geingob contributes to ‘Growth at Home Strategy’

23 Oct 2020

On 2 October 2020, Meatco, through its Livestock Production and Value Addition Department, procured 60 heads of cattle from the President of Namibia His Excellency, Dr Hage Geingob.

According to Meatco, the President is an ardent farmer and has marketed his cattle via Meatco. Namibian farmers are encouraged to support Meatco through animal marketing and contribute to the Growth at Home Strategy while fostering the meat marketing and processing entity to contribute to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), create employment opportunities and value-addition efforts. We procured top-quality slaughter animals that were in good condition.

Through this marketing opportunity to Meatco, the President is legible to become a Meatco Producer. We have established a solid relationship with the President, therefore, it is guaranteed that the next time he wants to market cattle, we will be his preferred marketing slaughterhouse because he aspires to contribute to the beef-exporting industry.

We will be in constant contact with the President’s farm management and offer technical advice whenever possible to ensure the improvement of the farming practices while safeguarding delivery of cattle that are of Meatco’s standard.

President Geingob is a commercial farmer in the northern part of the country.

Meatco would like to encourage all emerging commercial farmers to contact our offices and market their livestock to us for better prices and ultimately become Meatco Producers.
