Stock Brands

WHY MUST I REGISTER FOR A STOCK BRAND?

General information on stock brands

Stock brands serve as an identification system for cattle and are kept up to date on a national register. The brand identifies the owner of the animal and its primary purpose is the control and management of animal diseases. It is also an important tool to address the problem of stock theft. The legal basis is the Stock Brands Act (Act 24 of 1995) as amended and its regulations. In accordance with this legislation, in order to legally keep livestock, you must have a registered stock brand.

Which cattle must be marked with a stock brand?

  • All cattle older than 6 months, OR younger if they are moved before the age of 6 months.
  • If animals are bought OR received as a gift, they must be identified with the stock brand of the new owner within 30 days.
  • Cattle inteded for export to South Africa must be branded with an “N” on the left cheek.
  • Imported cattle must be marked with “(-----)” on the left cheek.

Rules for registering a brand

  • Owners may not brand their animals if the brand has not been registered. The same stock brand has to be used for large and small stock.
  • Only one brand per owner is allowed, except where a producer also holds a stud breeder brand.
  • Also, if an owner farms in several magisterial districts, he needs to register one stock brand per district.

Eartags

WHY MUST MY LIVESTOCK BE TAGGED?

The identification of livestock is described in the Animal Identification Regulations under the Animal Diseases and Parasites Act. The tagging of livestock is thus compulsory by law.

In accordance with the above mentioned Regulations, only approve identification devices may be used. Such identification devices will be approved on the basis of quality and efficiency.

The Regulations also give authority to the Minister of Agriculture to designate a person for the administration and distribution of identification devices. The Meat Board of Namibia was appointed as the administrator and distributor of cattle identification tags for areas south of the Veterinary Cordon Fence.

Identification of cattle

  • Owners of cattle must ensure that each animal is identified by means of the approved device in the prescribed manner (primary RFID tag in the left ear, and secondary visual tag in the right ear).
  • Calves must be tagged no later than 6 months after the date of birth OR before the calves leave the establishment where it was born, whichever is sooner.
  • A person who fails to comply with the provision of the Regulations commits an offence.
  • Approved Tags for cattle currently are: ALLFLEX tags distributed by the Meat Board of Namibia for areas south of the Veterinary Cordon Fence and DATAMARS tags distributed and applied by the Directorate of Veterinary Services in the Northern Communal Areas of Namibia.

Identification of sheep and goats

  • Owners of sheep and goats must ensure that each animal is identified by means of the approved device.
  • Lambs and kids must be tagged no later than 3 months after the date of birth OR before the lambs / kids leave the establishment where they were born, whichever is sooner.
  • A person who fails to comply with the provision of the Regulations commits an offence.
  • Approved tags for small stock currently are: Plastic ALLFLEX MINI SHEEP TAG and ALLFLEX BUTTON SHEEP TAG, or aluminium BESTAG, CONTI TAG and KAMTAG.

Identification of pigs

  • Owners of pigs must ensure that each animal is identified by means of the approved device.
  • Piglets must be identified no later than 3 months after the date of birth OR before the piglets leave the establishment where they were born, whichever is sooner.
  • A person who fails to comply with the provision of the Regulations commits an offence.

Identification of imported animals

  • Imported animals must be tagged with an identification device approved within 7 days of being imported OR before the animal leaves the establishment to which it was imported, whichever is sooner.

Central data base

  • All cattle and imported animals must be registered on the central data base.

Movement of designated animals

  • No animal may be moved if such animal is not identified in accordance with the Regulations.
  • The person in charge of moving the animals must be in possession of the original movement permit.
  • All movements must be captured on the central data base.

From all the above, the reasons for tagging livestock are:

  • It is compulsory by law
  • It is the only way in which livestock can legally be moved
  • It is a management tool which the farmer can use to keep accurate registers of animals on his farm
  • Registration of animals on the central data base assists with disease control through movement control and the ability to trace the movements of animals.

FAN Meat

WHAT IS FAN MEAT?

The FAN Meat Scheme was declared a National Scheme in September 1999, and is a scheme which aims to assure the quality and safety of meat to the consumer. The scheme aims to give this assurance by means of prescribed farm management practices, a traceability system in conjunction with NamLITS and lately by means of prescribed transport, auction, feed-manufacturer and abattoir standards.

The standards prescribed by the FAN Meat Scheme are based on Namibian legislation, meaning that these are standards to which all producers in Namibia already have to comply with. These standards contain and describe the legislation in a nutshell, giving the producer clear guidelines of what must be complied with.

The standards also contain basic principles of animal welfare, veld management and storing of chemicals, making the scheme both attractive and necessary for international trade. .

The success of the FAN Meat Scheme is apparent through maintained international markets as well as the recent obtaining of ISO 9001 certification. This certification is internationally acknowledged, and gives the FAN Meat Scheme even more leverage for international trade.

In short: the FAN Meat Logo means that the meat bought by the consumer is healthy and safe and comes from animals that were kept in good conditions, were vaccinated as prescribed by law, were transported in an acceptable manner and was slaughtered humanely.

Why must I register with FAN Meat?

The FAN Meat Scheme is an effort to promote the interests of the meat industry and to develop market opportunities. Consumers worldwide are asking the question: where does the meat that I buy come from, and how do I know it is safe? The FAN Meat Scheme is an answer to this question, and each producer of livestock in Namibia should aim to participate and comply with this scheme in order to build a good reputation in our international markets. The demand for safe meat of high quality is growing, and Namibia can proudly say that we can supply such a product.

The success and credibility of the scheme relies on the co-operation of all Namibians, and each producer registered with and complying with the FAN Meat Scheme is making a contribution towards the wellbeing of the Namibian livestock industry.

How can I register as a FAN Meat member?

According to the Stock Brands Act of Namibia, every person keeping/ owning cattle, MUST register for a stock brand. Once you register for a stock brand, you automatically become a FAN Meat Member. No extra cost involved!

In order to maintain your FAN Meat membership, you need to complete and submit an Animal Health Self-declaration form which is distributed by the Directorate of Veterinary Services twice a year. The Directorate of Veterinary Services also conducts farm inspections and community visits once a year. During these inspections, the inspector will check whether your records are up to date, whether you vaccinated your cattle as prescribed by law, whether your livestock is in good condition, is branded and whether they all have ear-tags. The inspector will also check that animal handling facilities are constructed in such a way that the animals cannot be injured during handling. Non-producer FAN Meat members, (export abattoirs, auctioneers/agents, transporters and feed manufacturers) are inspected by the Meat Board annually. Farm inspections are also conducted annually.

The records that need to be kept as well as the FAN Meat Producer Manual are obtainable from the Stock Brands office at the Meat Board of Namibia.

The future of FAN Meat

The FAN Meat Scheme aims to adopt a farm to abattoir approach. Each link in the chain can now register as a FAN Meat member and must comply with basic standards.

It is important to emphasise that these standards are based on legislation and good practices. By adopting a farm to abattoir approach, the credibility of the FAN Meat Scheme will improve even more, leading up to the goal of marketing the scheme as an international trademark.

Thus, each ear-tag placed, each record completed and kept up to date, each self-declaration submitted and each farm inspection or community visit conducted contributes to the health and development of the Namibian livestock sector, which is our most valuable commodity.
