The newly constructed Feed Mill at the Zoo-technical Centre in Ombe, Tiko Sub-Division – South West Region has been received. The provisional reception exercise took place at the project site in Ombe on Tuesday, 27th July 2021.


The contract for the construction of the Feed Mill was awarded to Higher Ground Enterprise, P.O. Box 467 Buea under the terms of Jobbing Order N° 002/21/JO/ SOWEDA/MINEPIA-PIB/2021 with funding provided by the 2021 Public Investment Budget of the Ministry of Livestock, Fisheries and Animal Industries (MINEPIA) allocated to SOWEDA.


Present for the reception were representatives of SOWEDA the Contracting Authority, the SW Regional Delegation of MINEPIA, SW Regional Delegation of Public Works, SW Regional Delegation of Public Contracts, as well as the Contractor.


It is worth mentioning that it is the first time that MINEPIA is allocating an investment subsidy to SOWEDA which is specifically destined to revamp the activities of the Ombe Zoo-technical Centre that has remained fallow for several years.


In a related story, a contract has recently been awarded to another contractor to supply and install the Feed Mill equipment. Once this is done, livestock farmers of the Region and especially in Fako Division will easily access feed for their animals at affordable prices.
