An outcry over delayed rains has been made by villagers in Mberengwa saying they fear loosing their livestock as most grazing lands has run out of pasture with most water bodies within the area also running dry .
Concerned villagers told YA FM news that some farmers have already lost a number of their livestock due to the development and called for government’s intervention.
Farmers also bemoaned exorbitant stock feed prices saying they can not afford buying it for supplementary purposes.
Farmers claim that stock feeds have fluctuated from $7 to $80 per 50 kg.
Government Veterinary Officer for Mberengwa and Zvishavane doctor Claudius Maguranyanga recently urged farmers who are experiencing drought to limit their herds though selling some of their livestock and use the capital to purchase stockfeed to avoid loosing all of their livestock.
