Cattle programme

Vanuatu to miss target of half a million strong cattle herd

The government began a programme in 2015 to build up cattle numbers, with the aim of making the country a significant exporter of beef.

It began with the shipping of cattle to Torba Province in 2015, but was stalled last year by Covid-19 .

But the second phase, with 124 breeding stock delivered to over 30 farmers on Epi Island in Shefa Province, has just got underway.
