Minister increases Meat Board levies

On advice of the Meat Board the Minister of Agriculture, Water and Forestry, increased the Meat Board levies on the transaction value of livestock, meat and meat products on 17 April 2015. Livestock include cattle, sheep, goats and pigs and meat and meat products derived from these species.
The raise in levies was necessitated in order to meet the extensive obligations of the meat industry in Namibia. The increases in levies are as follows:

  • 0,6% on the transaction value that takes place during auctions, private sales (sales by private treaty) and permit days,
  • 0,8% on the transaction value of meat imports,
  • 1,0% on the transaction value of livestock exports and
  • 0,7% on the transaction value at the slaughtering of the respective species and will come into effect on 1 June 2015.
    These increased levies will also apply during the in-transit transport of livestock, meat and meat products as well as the slaughtering of the species for private purposes. In the case where the value of the transaction cannot be determined with integrity, the announced standard value will be used for the payment of levies.

    Livestock export to South Africa

    At a special meeting the National Animal Health Forum with the Meat Board as administrator and the Directorate of Veterinary Services as chairman discussed the recent announcement of the notice given by the Directorate of Health Services, South Africa regarding the conditions for the import of livestock from Namibia to South Africa in the South African Government Gazette of 17 April 2015.
