Hunting news

Why should we focus on non-traditional meat production?

Wildlife has enormous potential for meat production on a global scale, and it is a significant source of the highly wanted animal protein for Africans in both urban and rural areas. It is usually acknowledged that bush meat or meat from commercially available game animals is preferred.

However, with an ever-increasing human population and clear protein insufficiency in Africa, additional options for providing readily edible meat on a short-term basis must be explored. Wildlife domestication has been identified as a means of accomplishing this goal.

This is due to the fact that hunters may return some days without catching anything, while others may catch more than they planned. Because of the irregularity in meat availability, some consumers may be inconvenienced, necessitating the need to keep them at home.

Inadequate product supply: keeping animals at home allows the farmer to increase productivity so that sufficient quantities may be obtained when needed, as opposed to hunting in the wild.

Species that aren't available when they're needed: when hunting, it's possible that you'll come back with livestock species that weren't intended for. For example, a hunter may set out to find grasscutters but come back with an antelope.

Environmental deterioration: Some primitive hunting tactics, like as wildfires, can pollute the air and burn down people's homes, resulting in environmental degradation. Extinction of wildlife: some primitive hunting practices, such as the use of poisonous substances and bushfires, may result in the extinction of entire generations of livestock species.
