BUHERA – Buhera villagers who lost thousands of cattle to bovine theileriosis have received 97 heifers to restock under the first phase of the National Presidential Heifer Pass on Scheme.
The scheme was launched by Vice President Chiwenga recently.
The handover to the beneficiaries took place on Monday and the process was facilitated by Veterinary and AGRITEX officers.
Of the 97 heifers, 33 heifers were handed over to Buhera North at an event that took place at Gaza Business Centre while 64 were handed to Buhera West beneficiaries at a function at Buhera Office.
The beneficiaries are expected to pass on the first heifer progeny to the next farmer for continuity of the programme. https://masvingomirror.com
