A farmer, Shedrack Madlion, has blamed the incessant bloody clashes between herdsmen and farmers on two Ministries of Government, the livestock division of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Environment.
He accused the ministries of neglecting their responsibilities of not identifying and bringing immediate solutions to some of the issues affecting cattle rearing.
The Farmer also noted that pastoral rearing, for instance, causes the cows to be unhealthy as opposed to ranching.
He said this when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, insisting that pastoral herding is completely outdated.
Speaking further, he pointed out that the best quality beef is produced from livestock reared on ranches, both in Nigeria and elsewhere in the world.
