Suspected outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in Zambezi

The Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry put movement restrictions on all livestock and livestock products in the Zambezi Region as from 14 July 2015 after a suspected outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease. These restrictions are of vital importance to prevent the spreading of foot-and-mouth disease within the region and to other areas. These restrictions have been a setback for the cattle producers of the region after all restrictions were lifted on 2 July 2015, seven months after an outbreak on 2 December 2014. Cattle producers in the region are greatly dependent on the income received from the slaughtering of cattle, because of the impact of the current drought on the agronomy and the moratorium on fishing. Because of this crisis they have already started putting cattle in quarantine camps for slaughter. Renewed efforts will be initiated by the Meat Board to improve the marketing options of cattle producers.
