Uganda Vision 2040 has the primary aim of seeing Uganda become a middle income country by 2040. To bring about this Vision the Government of Uganda (GoU) has development a number of supporting plans, policies and strategies, but all fall within the National Development Plan II (NDP2). The NDP2 mentions a number of strategic agricultural commodity options which it believes, if supported and grown, can help move Uganda towards its Vision 2040. One of the commodity sectors mentioned is the livestock sector, and in particular Uganda’s ability to produce some of the best beef in Africa. However, for this to be achieved a number of sector challenges need to be addressed including; outdated and non-enforced policies, poor production, productivity and quality assurance practices, and marketing and processing facilities which do not meet current international standards.
