Zimbabwean Farmers Urged to Insure Livestock

31 May 2017

ZIMBABWE - Livestock farmers have been urged to commercialise their operations and insure their animals to avoid losses in the event of diseases and natural disasters such as drought.

Chronicle reports that Zimbabwe Farmers’ Union (ZFU) Midlands provincial head, Mr Alpha Majera, bemoaned losses that farmers suffer due to failure to insure their products.

“We are urging all farmers in the country to insure their livestock, which will give cover against losses due to accidental death, diseases of terminal nature and also against natural disasters,” he said.

Mr Majera said this during a recent stakeholders meeting which was held in Gweru where he stressed the need to develop sound farm production in communities.

The meeting was attended by farming stakeholders who included agro-dealers, abattoirs and the police among others.
