Government to issue cows birth certificates in Uganda
Cows will be registered, numbered and will have a birth certificate, the Ugandan government has said.
Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni said the registration of the animals will make Uganda effectively and sustainably penetrate the international market.
"People want to know what they are buying to eat, where it is coming from, its quality and what they are spending their money on,"
Speaking during the national agricultural show launch in Jinja grounds on Tuesday, Museveni said that farmers will be registered too.
“Registering farmers is a major requirement. We cannot do without it and if we ignore it, we will lose to competition in the international market," he said.
