This report focuses on the farming of animals in South Africa. Livestock farming is the largest agricultural sector in the country with a population of some 13.9 million cattle and 24 million sheep. Approximately 80% of the country’s agricultural land is suitable for extensive livestock farming. According to the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF), in 2013 revenue from animal products increased by 7.4% from 2012 and amounted to R87.437bn. The industry is expected to grow as global population growth and the expansion of developing economies boost the demand for meat. Of concern to those involved in the industry are outbreaks of Foot-and-Mouth (FMD) disease and the occurrence of bird flu in the ostrich population. In February 2014, after a three-year ban on the export of red meat, South Africa was recognised by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) as a country with a zone free of FMD without vaccination. However, exports are under threat again after an OIE mission team conducted a verification assessment on FMD controls in December 2014 and identified areas that need further attention.
