    Default Foot and Mouth Outbreak

    We had an outbreak of F&M here lately and all hoven animal meat products pulled from the shelves (while the Agriculture dept determines which farmer/area is the culprit) so the abattoirs have been still and unoperational for the second week this week.

    What this means, is that they borders will be more sticky with regards to bringing in meat products and might affect the supply of beef/lamb etc here to you in the smaller towns. Only one or two shops in Maun have had their meat taken away and the big butcheries with better suppliers are fine and you can still buy meat.
    But just be aware. Hopefully the problem will be over soon.

    And the searching of vehicles is vigorous along the Sehithwa- Maun. Milk, meat not permitted.

    Should have no influence on the border.

    Tara's post is not clear, but I assume the outbreak is in the zone Maun falls in. So you might struggle finding meat in Maun, but it is moot anyway bacause no meat will be allowed out of that zone.

    Hello,

    So you think no problem at the border?
    we enter Bots this saterday and are planning of taking 4 portions from 0,5kg= so total 2 kg over the Stockpoort boder
    We ordered our meat in front at Maun, do you think this will be a problem?

    Hope at your advice
