WAGYU GRADING

Meat Board has been approached by the Namibian Wagyu Breeders Association to become involved as an independent third party in the grading of Wagyu carcasses.

The Wagyu breed of cattle has the potential to store a high amount of fat (marbling) inside muscles.

The degree of fat deposition therefore determines the grade, in other words the higher the concentration of fat the better the grading.

The first two thoroughbred Wagyu oxen were recently slaughtered at the Beefcor abattoir in Okahandja, after which a Meat Board classifier was trained in the grading process.

The two oxen achieved a ‘Beef Marble Score’ of 8 and 9 respectively, which is excellent for Namibian conditions.

MEAT BOARD HAS A LIMITED QUANTITY OF ABOROCIDES

The Meat Board, in an effort to make a contribution to combating national bush encroachment, imports and sells aborocides to producers on a cost-recovery basis.

The eradication of invasive and unwanted bush leads to increased carrying capacity of the national pasture, and thus increased production. The initial cost of the aborocides may appear to be expensive, but the cost benefit is significant. The following aborocides are available: Tebuthiuron 200 GR (25 kg bag @ N $ 4,658.25 VAT included per bag) and Tebuthuiron 500 SC (5 liters @ N $ 1609,01 VAT included). For the availability of aborocides, Mr Desmond Cloete can be contacted at the Meat Board Head Office at telephone number: 061-275877 / 275858.
