GUIDELINES FOR CATTLE IDENTIFICATION AND MARKETING

This document was developed by the Meat Board of Namibia with inputs by the Directorate of Veterinary Services. The purpose of this document is to provide a visual guideline on the identification requirements for cattle in terms of the Animal Health Act (Act 01 of 2011) in Namibia, and includes the identification requirements for the keeping and for the marketing of cattle.

EXTENION OF THE ISSUING OF MANUAL CATTLE EAR TAG PURCHASE QUOTA TO CHIEF - AND STATE VETERINARIANS

DIRECTORATE VETERINARY SERVICES EXTENDED THE ISSUING OF MANUAL CATTLE EAR TAG PURCHASE QUOTA TO CHIEF - AND STATE VETERINARIANS:

The Directorate of Veterinary Services implemented a quota system on 8 June 2020 in which all producers who purchase cattle ear tags from the Meat Board, or its various agents may only purchase a certain number of ear tags, depending on the quantity they qualify for.

Farmers who do not qualify for sufficient cattle ear tags can now apply through the Chief Veterinarian or the local State Veterinarian for a manual ear tag purchase quota. Farmers are encouraged to use NamLITS Online where the internet allows them to enquire on their allowed quota or enquire directly from their local State Veterinarian before applying to purchase cattle ear tags directly from the Meat Board of Namibia, Ear Tag office in Windhoek.

The local State Veterinarian may need to conduct necessary investigations including farm inspections or may require a police declaration from the farmer or a testimonial from the authorized traditional authority before adjusting the ear tag quota; therefore farmers are encouraged to enquire and apply well in advance to avoid disappointment.
