The COVID-19 outbreak has no doubt wreaked havoc on a number of livestock businesses in Nigeria and sub – Sahara Africa. In Nigeria, the outbreak initiated total lock down in some states while partial curfew were put imposed in some. Although there have been considerations and movement for farmers’ products, it is evident that livestock farming not will operate as it were for sometimes to come.
Sequel to this, we members of the Livestock Industry Foundation for Africa (LIFA) held series of meetings to discuss mitigation strategies for the post COVID-19 pandemic, we agreed on modalities for livestock businesses and consultancy in Nigeria. Our outcome and strategic implement action will follow soon.
