  1. My small herd of cattle is in Lukona Area, Kalabo District, Barotseland, how do I access such subsdised breeds?

  2. No quality not style. They must be ashamed of selling bulls that appear like oxen. No wonder they are subsidized.

  3. I thought such a venture should have been established in cattle rearing areas like southern province and western province.It would make a lot of sense

    • Luapula us tsetse fly free and has plenty of water so animal husbandly is better than southern province. It just need mind set change and make it bleeding centre to assist the rest of the country.

  4. What would make better sense is to have have an arifucial insemination program and facility and get the semen to the farms so that there is a greater amount of quality livestock. Better quality livestock means potential export markets.
    We could import semen and really improve our herds.
    You give one farmer one bull then that one farm benefits. Letcout vets learn more about artificial insemination.

  5. @ Mbembi, Maano, Singamba and other kachemas, please consider relocating your farms to Luapula and better still somewhere near Chishinga breeding centre. There is plenty of grazing land in Luapula and your cattle will quickly start looking as healthy as yourselves.

    • @Mina, pasture or grass in Luapula is of poor quality. Its not nutritious due to leaching as a result of high rainfall. You better off putting you cattle farm in Southern, Central & Northwestern provinces. look at the quality of the animals. its not so good.
