The Chitubu Pen Fattening Group in Gokwe North was all smiles recently after receiving its first batch of a beef survival meal. The feed has been secured through the LFSP’s Crisis Modifier initiative. The group’s 24 members will each get eighteen 50kg bags which will sustain their beasts until the full restoration of pastures. Areas such as Gokwe North, Gokwe South, Kwekwe, and Shurugwi were affected by 2018-2019 season’s drought and as such have poor pastures. The Crisis Modifier is helping farmers to get through this difficult period by providing survival feed, dipping chemicals, poultry vaccinations among other things.
