Ugandan government demanding that every farmer or family obtain a birth certificate for their cows.

According to Uganda’s Agriculture Minister Vincent Ssempijja, the new requirement is necessitated by demands from the international market that all countries producing foodstuff and crops for the European market produce its traceability.

‘‘They want to know where the products are coming from; they have been impounding and banning all consignments from Uganda if they find one box with issues,” stated, as quoted by the Ugandan Daily Monitor.

The government needs to enhance the registration of domestic animals to avoid conflicts and keep off cattle rustlers.  The majority of farmers in Uganda welcomed the announcement but urged the government to create a smooth way of obtaining documents for their domestic animals.
