Best cattle breeds at ZITF 2019

Livestock farmers who are part of this year’s ZITF exhibition have brought in some of the best breeds of animals, a confirmation that the transformation of ranching to an industry that can have impact on the national economy is set to be realised.

In line with the national vision of commercialising ranching, only commercial breeds of animals are available at this year’s trade showcase as farmers demonstrate their ability to produce super and choice grades of beef animals that are export quality.

 A seasoned breeder and animal grader Mr Joseph Sikhosana says judging by the high quality of animals, the farmers have demonstrated the improved management skills and selection of commercial breeds that fetch the best price on the market, where the beef master, brahman and nkone, are at the show.
