The RPO has called for a new national livestock census that will establish more accurate and upto- date livestock numbers in South Africa. This is essential for ensuring the sustainability of livestock production. A proposal for a new livestock census will be tabled at the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF). In order to arrive at the proposal, a study was conducted to determine how census numbers are obtained in other countries. It was recommended that independent structures within the agricultural sector be approached to help conduct the surveys.
