Meat, Dairy Export Generates $68m

The export of meat and milk products generated 68.3 million dollars during the past 11 months of the current fiscal year, according to a report from the Ministry of Trade & Industry. During the reported period, the government expected 113.9 million dollars from the export of meat and milk products. Out of the total revenue, 61.3 million dollars was bagged from the export of goat and sheep meat. Ox meat and meat by-products generated 1.3 million dollars and 2.93 million dollars, respectively. Honey, wax, fish and dairy products brought in 2.6 million dollars. The lack of quality in supply, shortages of livestock yards, lack of credit provision, illegal livestock trading and electricity cuts have all been blamed for the poor performance, according to Mekonnen Gasu, deputy director-general of the Meat & Dairy Industry Development Institute.
