If your cow dies of natural causes, GLOBAL LIVESTOCK FARMERS will replace it at no cost to you. This excludes natural disasters and notifiable diseases (e.g. foot and mouth, anthrax, etc.) because they are diseases that are beyond everyone’s control.
Our team of highly experienced animal production experts can take care of any known cattle sickness. We quarantine cows when they are sick and employ the services of an experienced local veterinarian.
The areas that are experiencing severe drought but our farms receives on average 40% more rainfall than the country average at 750mm per annum. As a result, we have received sufficient rains and therefore have sufficient grass and water for our cows in spite of the drought.
We have put other measures such as securing additional grass feed should it be necessary. We also ensure that our farms carry the optimal number of cows, so that there is enough grass for each animal.
The risk of your cow being stolen from our farms is low because of the measures we have put in place to secure your cow. As with every investment there are risks, and theft is a one such risk that farmers across the country face.
We have put the following measures in place:
In the near future, we aim to have all our cows electronically tagged using micro-chip technology. The technology will alert you the owner and us when the cow leaves the boundaries of the farm.
The risks of miscarriage, still birth and calf mortality are to be expected in any livestock farming operation. We share this risk equally amongst all the owners of the cows on the farm. In simple terms, you get the same divided amount as all other owners of cows on the farm.
We are always being audited by largest auditing companies. They audit the integrity of our business to ensure that your cow belongs to nobody else but you. They also audit our financial statements.
Clubbing together to buy a cow is encouraged. We have a standard constitution that group investors can download or request that needs to be signed by all members. The constitution must also nominate the main contact person who will interact with GLOBAL LIVESTOCK FARMERS.
Investors can arrange to visit the farm to interact with their cows at any time.
Investors may sell their cows anytime but only through us. We then offer the cow for sale to investors on our waiting list.
As an investor you will receive a cattle ownership certificated that is signed and stamped by our auditors.
