Ostrich Exports

EXPORTS

More than 65% of the world's ostrich population is found in South Africa. This country also accounts for 90% of the ostrich products available in the world. Oudtshoorn, located in the Southern Cape of South Africa, is considered the ostrich capital of the world. South Africa's ostrich population ranks high for exports and is reported to be one of the top twenty agriculturally-based industries in the country.

Karoo Livestock Exports (KLE) has government approved isolation facilities in South Africa. We successfully farm with South African Black Neck Ostriches, Cattle, Boer Goats and Sheep for more than 150 years and guarantee top quality breeding stock at very reasonable prices.

KLE consist of a board of professional consultants providing expert advice to assist existing farmers in upgrading the quality of their flocks. Our consulting panel can also assist in the layout and construction of new facilities as well as the technical management of the project, with full-time professional backup on an ongoing basis. We also have fully-trained South African farm managers available to manage new projects for a period of at least one year.

Important Documentation

Each Country's Import Protocol Requirements may have a significant impact on the cost of the project. It is absolutely essential that we receive the following documentation and information from the importer before we can prepare a formal quote:

  • Import Permit issued by the importing country's Department of Veterinary Services, if applicable
  • Import Protocol issued by the importing country's Department of Veterinary Services or similar department, if applicable
  • Port of entry into the country or Airport to be used
  • Number of animals required
  • Estimate time of arrival

 

Our team of experts will ensure that:

  • only top quality chicks / breeders are selected from the best breeding stock
  • all isolation requirements are adhered to, as specified in the import protocol issued by the importing country
  • all birds / chicks are tested for and certified free of the specific diseases, as specified in the Import Protocol. A Veterinary Certificate to support this will accompany the relevant export documentation
