Cattle shipment

Cattle in good hands

The Launakalana estate is running smoothly as they take care of more than 260 cattle. 

Launakalana farmer supervisor, Kaile Korowi, shared that the first shipment of cattle back in December 2022, are growing and increasing in the ranch. 

"They are a bit rough, however we have a strong fence to cater and feed them. We put them on quarantine for the first few days when they arrived before releasing into the paddock. 

“For the first shipment of cattle, roughly more than 10 calves were born within the space of nine months.”

Meat increase

They aim to decrease the importing of livestock from other countries and focus on breeding our own livestock and distributing. 

Now, Central Province is expected to see an increase in beef production, now that cattle numbers have been doubled.

The increase in meat production will be in no doubt for Central Province as the second shipment of cattle arrived in Keapara village in Central Province yesterday.

LDC Managing Director, Terry Koim, said this cattle program is in line with LDC’s objective of increasing beef stock in the country and reclaiming all LDC assets.
