2.2 PROJECT BRIEF
Botswana is a semi-arid climate environment; this makes about 85 % of the agricultural land
suitable for pastoral farming (Livestock rearing) than arable farming. The livestock sector plays a
significant role in Botswana agricultural output . livestock rearing is responsible for a number of
important roles on both rural communities and developing areas. Agriculture is a source of
employment to local community hence empowering them indirectly. Livestock provide a source
of foreign exchange which help in the upgrading of Botswana economy. The mandate of the
project would be to export beef by selling to Botswana Meat Commission (B.M.C),
accommodate youth to learn about livestock rearing and breading and to breed quality breeds for
exporting and selling them locally to improve cattle breeds in Botswana .Adoption of new
technologies developed in livestock rearing will assist Botswana to be competitive on global
markets hence this technologies will be implemented on the project. This will improve livestock
productivity to preserve the profitability of commercial livestock activities on both domestic and
global markets. My ambition is to diversify the economy by ensuring quality livestock rearing.
Agricultural policies advocated on communal rangeland farming help to improve range
conservation practices. Fencing alone cannot improve the use of range land in an suitable
manner. Fenced areas should always be characterized by good management of livestock and
range resources as competition among pastoral farmers result in depletion of range resources.
The livestock sector especially cattle play a vital role in Gross Domestic Products (GDP) as
currently it contributes about 3%. To improve agricultural sector (especially pastoral farming)
energetic youth and government should give it more attention as a way of diversifying the
economy.
The applicant have ambitions of starting livestock rearing for commercial purposes ,
provide and accommodate youth educational tours and camps and to create employment
and upgrade rural immigrant social life. The applicant have been managing a family mixed
herd of about 150 in matopi cattleposts which was then negatively affected by foot and
mouth disease. Mr Toitoi has desires to continue agricultural sector especially pastoral
farming in foot and mouth disease (FMD) free area. Mr Toitoi currently owns an audi 3
vehicle with intensions of obtaining agricultural assets to pursue dreams of being a
renowned farmer.
