Agra awarded for fodder sales
The Otjiwarongo branch of Agra was awarded the overall winner after being ranked first in the category for growth and third in the rank for tonnes sold. Grootfontein branch was second overall and Okahandja third.
In the category for growth, the Otjiwarongo branch was in first place, Oshivelo branch was second, and Grootfontein was third.
Windhoek branch sold the most tonnes of fodder and lick in 2014, with Grootfontein second and Otjiwarongo in third place.
Agra and Feedmaster come a long way as partners in the supply of fodder and licks in Namibia. Feedmaster was founded in 1983 as a small feed milling operation with the initial main purpose of adding value to available milling by-products.
It has since grown to a major role player with three factories and an annual output of 150 000 tonnes of animal feed products. Agra has been a retailer of Feedmaster’s products since shortly after the beginning of their existence.
Agra said that as an agriculture retailer and service provider they strive to always provide in the needs of producers despite challenges as a result of the huge demand for fodder versus the availability, especially in periods of drought. Realising the challenges that producers face, Agra said they appreciate the continuous support of their clients.
