MEAT BOARD INCREASES STOCK BRAND ADMINISTRATION FEES FROM 1 JANUARY 2020

To cover the administration costs of issuing stock brands, The Meat Board adjusted the following administration fees:  

  • Registration of a new stock brand: N$142.00  
  • Transfer of a stock brand:  N$51.00
  • Issuing of a duplicate certificate of a stock brand:  N$90.00 

 

Fee increases have come into effect since 1 January 2020 and annually increase in line with the official inflation rate. The Meat Board performs the administration of stock brands, which is done on a cost recovery basis, on behalf of the Registrar of Stock Brands (who is the Directorate Veterinary Services).  

MEAT BOARD’S PROGRESS WITH THE OPERATIONALISATION OF THE KATIMA MULILO EXPORT ABATTOIR

The Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry requested the assistance of The Meat Board with the operationalisation of the Katima Mulilo export abattoir. Funding for the process was transferred to The Meat Board. Contractors for the provision and service of cooling, water, electricity and security have already been appointed and are on site.  The abattoir should be able to commence with test slaughtering before the end of February 2020, depending on the completion date of the repair of the Katima Mulilo quarantine camp. Meat producers from the Zambesi region have not had access to a formal market for the last five years. All cattle that are offered for slaughter at the abattoir must adhere to the requirements of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) recommendations for Commodity-based trade (“CBT”).
