In 2017, there were no goat abattoirs in all of South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho or Zimbabwe. So when the South African Agribusiness Development Agency was told to build one in KwaZulu Natal Province, they asked for help from Mdukatshani, a local NGO that is implementing a Goat Agribusiness Project. Director Rauri Alcock found the closest one in Tete, Mozambique. Here is his report of the visit. Unfortunately, in 2020, this goat abattoir is not yet built.
The International Goat Association promotes goat research and development for the benefit of humankind, to alleviate poverty, to promote prosperity and to improve the quality of life.
