Titre : New market for South African communal livestock farmers thanks to tailor-made training

Pays /Région : Afrique du Sud

Début du projet : Sep 1, 2017

Présentation
Tailor-made training courses developed by the Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation help to improve the organisation of communal livestock farmers in South Africa and allow them to tap into a potentially large market for red meat in the country. This benefits the farmers as well as the biodiversity of important South African landscapes.
Beautiful South African landscapes like the Mzimvubu Catchment in Eastern Cape, the Namakwa District north of Cape Town and the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Reserve Region encompassing the Kruger National Park are home to many small-scale communal farmers who herd cattle, goats and sheep. Farmers on communal lands own nearly half the country’s livestock ; however, only five percent of the formal red meat market comes from these subsistence or small-scale farmers. Demand for red meat is high in South Africa and there is much potential for communal farmers to increase sales of their natural red meat to wholesale red meat markets.
