Mozbife Lda plans to open new livestock project in Mozambique

12 July 2012

Mozbife Lda, a beef cattle producer, plans to open up a new project in Sussundenga, in the Mozambican central province of Manica, and the environmental and social impact study for the project is underway, Macauhub has learned in the city of Chimoio.

The new livestock project includes a grazing area of 14,000 hectares, with capacity to provide open grazing to 3,000 head of beef cattle.

Last May Mozbife announced that in 2015 it would have 10,000 head of cattle, and the company also planned to build a 48 million cubic-metre water reservoir at its stud farm in Mavonde, Manica province.

The reservoir will also produce 132 kVa of electricity to power irrigation pumps.

Mozbife is also installing equipment at the recently built abattoir in the city of Chimoio, the capital of Manica province, and will also open two butcher shops in the city.

Mozbife Lda is a subsidiary of Agriterra, a pan-African agricultural group listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) of the London Stock Exchange. (macauhub)
