Beefing up your investments

In early 2014, Al Mabroor identified and recognized an ideal opportunity in the agricultural sector. This created a new, innovative and exciting investment opportunity to our loyal investors. Initially the Al Mabroor Cattle Feeding Project was launched in a joint venture with Douglas Beef, situated on the banks of the Orange River in the Northern Cape.  

 

The main aim of the project is to purchase beef calves between the ages of 6 - 9 months and to rear them to be ready to enter the feedlot system, from where it is eventually sold to the abattoir. 

 

At present Al Mabroor Agri owns around 55 000 cattle, including breeding stock, and sells between 1000 – 1200 animals on a weekly basis to the abattoir. Further sales are conducted on a regular basis at auctions across the country. The best quality female animals are retained to increase the breeding stock in order to produce our own offspring in years to come. 

 

In the past year, Al Mabroor Agri diversified on a small scale into sheep farming, macadamia nut production and vegetable farming. In the long term, diversification will play a pivotal role in the sustainability of the Al Mabroor agricultural product.
