Woman reads the newspaper at her stall selling zebu meat. Ambatolampy, Madagascar. 28 October 2022
In local butcheries in Madagascar, all parts of a zebu are sold. These businesses are often small shacks where the meat is displayed on wooden planks without any refrigeration. Despite this, only 5% of Madagascar's zebu population is slaughtered each year, with the rest being kept as status symbols. This surplus of animals leads to a significant excess of zebu that are not being used for their meat.
