First Batch of Imported In-calf Heifers Arrives in Zimbabwe

Posted on Monday, April 27, 2020

In February 2020, TranZDVC outsourced 200 in-calf heifers from Eastern Cape in South African to help boost and improve Zimbabwe’s livestock genetics.

The first batch of 105 in-calf heifers arrived in Zimbabwe on 26 April 2020 via the Beitbridge Border post. The animals will undergo quarantine for the next 30 days at two Integrator sites at Coetzee Farm in Kweke, Midlands province and Reddane Farm in Marirangwe, Mashonaland East province. The Integrators who include DenDairy, Nestle Zimbabwe and ProDairy will be responsible for the distribution of the animals to selected small-scale dairy farmers through a heifer matching facility.
