Suspension of live cattle export to RSA

  1. Farmers and stakeholders are informed that the government of the Republic
    of South Africa (RSA) has imposed a cattle movement standstill in order to

control Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD).

  1. This movement standstill affects movement of cattle in and out of feedlots.
  2. Importation of cattle into RSA has also been suspended
    . As a result the Department of Veterinary Services has suspended issuing
    export permits for live cattle to RSA with immediate effect.
  3. All unused export permits for live cattle to RSA are cancelled and should

therefore be considered invalid.

  1. Farmers and stakeholders are advised to note that live cattle export
    dispensation HAS NOT been suspended and applications can still be made
    to the Minister of Agriculture for export of live cattle to other countries
    accepting imports of live cattle from Botswana.
