2005-10-28

The University of the Free State (UFS) made the cattle auction facilities of its Lengau Agricultural Development Centre at the Sydenham experimental farm available to CMW.  The agreement is a collaboration between the UFS, the Mangaung Local Municipality and the National Farmers Union (NAFU) and will commence in November 2005. CMW is a minority shareholder of Sinethemba Mafana, a black economic empowerment company concentrating on the upcoming agricultural sector.  The cattle auctions will be held at the centre on the last Thursday of the month.
