Livestock farmers in Chipinge district have raised concern over the shortage of pastures owing to high temperatures, a situation they say is now threatening the lives of cattle in the district. Speaking to Diamond Fm district livestock officer Mr John Mwandifura said the situation could get worse should the district continue receiving below average rainfall, further encouraging farmers in areas with grazing land to start hay cutting and stock for future use. Most parts of Zimbabwe have been experiencing high temperatures of between 30-40 degrees, a situation which has also led to wilting of crops.
