Ben Shikongo said : “The abattoir is struggling because we do not have a formal market for beef. The only market available is the informal market but there is no way we can be operating just to supply the informal market because they are already catering for individuals who supply them with meat or cattle. The government has given a directive for local institutions to consume local produce, including meat, but institutions are not complying with this,” “Within the NCA, there are many cattle of good quality that can sustain the local market with quality beef, but institutions are still bringing in meat from south of the red line. This is denying us access to the market. We are looking for a market and we are also encouraging the government to re-emphasise the land conference resolution so that the business community and OMAs support local abattoirs” External link

Last year we opened a butchery at Outapi and we have so far slaughtered 34 cattle (in total) but the market is very small. We decided to only buy and sell cattle on the hoof to those having weddings or at open markets,” External link

Ben Shikongo said : “Farmers can bring their cattle, but we always have disagreements on pricing. We have a scale we use to price them, depending on the weight and type, but in most cases they do not want to accept the price which is a main challenge; because of the drought most cattle are not well-fed,” External link
