After holding a meeting with feedstock producers last Monday, the Minister of Agriculture, Food Sovereignty and Livestock, Dr. Mabouba Diagne, announced good news to breeders. In fact, the price of a bag of livestock feed is now set at 5000 CFA francs.

Other resolutions were also taken during the meeting. Food distribution will take place in the 14 regions of Senegal instead of 7 regions for the previous year. The ministry’s services also announced the increase in the quantity of livestock feed allocated to preparations for Tabaski 2024, which increased from 2,200 tonnes to 2,570 tonnes, an increase of 17%.

However, for the price of the bag of livestock feed set at 5,000 CFA francs, former minister Babacar Gaye informs that this only concerns “the bag sold in fairgrounds. And that the sale is made in proportion to the livestock parked within the forail enclosure according to the available quota.”

B. Gaye, who owns a sheepfold in Kaffrine, explains: “What is done at the fairgrounds is a practice that has always been carried out by governments. In Kaffrine, in fact, it is at the fairgrounds that it sells for 5,000. Moreover, it is small quantities that are given. The head of the livestock department in Kaffrine told the person who takes care of my sheepfold that they have not yet received the instruction to sell at 5,000. So, they sell at 9,000.
