Ugandan Govt to issue birth certificates for cows.

By Lisa Masuku

THE Ugandan government has issued an order that evry cow in Uganda should be registered , number and issued with a birth certificate to allow “traceability of their products and to enable them to  benefit from the international market.”

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.
