MEAT BOARD SETS UP QUALITATIVE RISK ANALYSIS AS PART OF THE NAMIBIAN DOSSIER FOR THE STATUS OF CATTLE TUBERCULOSIS

The Meat Board initiated and financed the preparation of a dossier regarding the Namibian cattle tuberculosis status.  This document is a compilation of information and data about the prevalence of cattle tuberculosis in Namibia dating back to 1980.   A qualitative risk analysis, conducted on the compiled data, indicated that Namibia holds negligible risk with regard to cattle tuberculosis without the need for individual testing of cattle prior to export. This risk is in alignment with the level of protection for the import of cattle as required by South Africa.  The Directorate Veterinary Services has already been in contact with the Directorate Animal Health South Africa in this regard.  Should negotiations for the termination of testing against cattle tuberculosis be successful, it will lead to significant savings and improvement of animal welfare of cattle exported to feed lots.
