Hello fellow environmentalists,eco generals members, visitors,brothers and sisters.

The livestock sector is worth over $1.5bn in Zambia and accounts for around 35% of agriculture production share of national gross domestic product. 

The sector has experienced steady growth in recent years. 

Beef and dairy products are growing around 7% and 10% annually respectively. 

The poultry industry has also doubled in size over the last ten years. 

Companies listed here raise, buy and sell livestock for farming and food production in Zambia. 

Livestock are domesticated animals raised in an agricultural setting to produce commodities such as food, fibre and labour. 

Poultry is commonly included within the meaning of 'livestock'.

Thank you for reading.
