The National Assembly recently approved the LIVESTOCK AND LIVESTOCK PRODUCTS BILL, which involves amendments to the Meat Act. These amendments involve the declaration of chicken, dairy, eggs, hides, and skins as controlled products. All the affected sectors indicated that some input from the Meat Board is expected, whether it be sustainable growth or additional functions. The funding of the functions to the sectors will be done on a similar basis to that of cattle, sheep, and goats. The proposed legislation has yet to be published in the Government Gazette. As soon as this happens, consultations with the respective sectors will begin in earnest.
