New administrative installations and livestock sanitary control facilities
In terms of the installations, the office building of the Development Bureau of Planalto de Camabatela and of the region’s Farming Cooperative Directorate will be improved, and the offices of the Planalto Veterinary Services will be built, with a total area of approximately 570 m2 for administrative and veterinary use, fully fitted out for both purposes.
In addition, five sanitary control posts will be built in the region, to oversee animals from other zones through vehicle control facilities with a barrier and sanitary enclosure, diagnostic lab, stabling for isolation and quarantining of animals, feed storage buildings, vehicle cleaning and disinfection stations, installations for the handling and de-worming of animals, and incineration equipment. The project also contemplates a cattle confinement unit consisting of five buildings of 1,350 m2 each, to house the animals before sending them to the slaughterhouse, with a total capacity of 1,000 animals. All of this will be completed with a community centre to boost the livestock trade, which will include an administrative building and installations for carrying out parasite removal treatments and an enclosure for holding cattle fairs with seating for the public.
In terms of the infrastructure, actions will be undertaken to expand and improve it, by building new power lines, rehabilitating rural roads, creating water storage basins and installing fencing for cattle enclosures.
At the same time, livestock farming operations will be improved in the region with the construction of new stabling for cattle, feed storage facilities, handling and parasite removal installations, supply points for salt, water and fuel tanks, pivot irrigation systems, and the supply of farming equipment and cattle transport vehicles. In addition, cattle numbers will be repopulated with the supply of 2,340 new cattle heads to the region.
