Didiza has suspended all development of steers in the country for 21 days - because of a flare-up of foot and mouth illness.
The division said South Africa is encountering 116 episodes in six of the country's nine areas.
The illness has been recognized on ranches, feedlots and shared regions in KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, North West, Gauteng, Mpumalanga and the Free State.
Horticulture Minister Thoko Didiza said the new boycott just applies to steers yet ranchers with other domesticated animals, for example, sheep, goats and pigs ought to apply the essential mindfulness.
Her representative, Reggie Ngcobo said steers that are now at shows, sales or in transit will be given 48 hours to be moved to the last objections in the wake of being sold.
"The Minister recognizes the endeavors made by ranchers, networks and ventures to check the unlawful development of animals from non-positive regions and to further develop security on animal possessions, be that as it may, the sickness keeps on spreading with 15 new properties and two territories impacted over the most recent fourteen days alone."
Ngcobo said special cases might be made for steers for direct butcher at enrolled abattoirs and those butchered for ceremonial purposes.
