RPO POSITIONS TO REPRESENT THE FARMER’S INTEREST IN A SUSTAINABLE RED MEAT INDUSTRY TO PROMOTE FOOD SECURITY IN SOUTH AFRICA

The sustainability of the red meat industry in South Africa is under threat if proper support in terms of animal health on the farm is not achieved.

In addition to volatile market conditions and the importance of steady market channels, animal health is one of the critical drivers for South African livestock farmers to continue to deliver quality red meat to the market,” said Mr. Koos van der Ryst, national Chairman of the Red Meat Producers’ Organisation (RPO).

Dedicated focus must also be given to empower entrants to the red meat industry with the necessary training and support to ensure sustainable and competitive production in order to grow the availability of high quality products.

RPO POSISIONEER OM DIE BELANG VAN DIE PRODUSENT TE VERTEENWOORDIG

RPO POSISIONEER OM DIE BELANG VAN DIE PRODUSENT TE VERTEENWOORDIG IN ‘N VOLHOUBARE ROOIVLEISBEDRYF OM VOEDSELSEKURITEIT IN SUID-AFRIKA TE BEVORDER

Die volhoubaarheid van die rooivleisbedryf in Suid-Afrika word bedreig as die regte ondersteuning met dieregesondheid op die plaas nie bewerkstellig word nie.

Benewens wisselvallige marktoestande en die belangrikheid van bestendige markkanale, is dieregesondheid een van die kritiese drywers vir Suid-Afrikaanse veeboere om voort te gaan om kwaliteit rooivleis aan die mark te lewer,” sê mnr Koos van der Ryst, nasionale Voorsitter van die Rooivleisprodusente-organisasie (RPO).

Toegewyde fokus moet ook geplaas word om toetreders tot die rooivleisbedryf te bemagtig met die nodige opleiding en ondersteuning om produksie volhoubaar en mededingend te maak, ten einde beskikbaarheid van ‘n hoë-gehalte produk te verhoog.

OUTBREAK OF LISTERIOSIS IN SOUTH AFRICA

The Red Meat Industry Forum has taken note with concern of the outbreak of listeriosis as reported by the Department of Health on 5 December 2017 which could be misleading with the large number of photos of livestock portrayed in media coverage thereof. Listeria monocytogenes is the primary cause of the illness called listeriosis. This bacterium is widely distributed in nature and has been found in soil, water, sewage, mud, silage and decaying vegetation. It has been isolated from humans, a wide variety of healthy and diseased animals and birds, animal products, fresh produce such as vegetables and fruit, food packaging and processing environments.  Read more …
