Group of farmers from Namibia visit the UFS
2007-11-15

 

A group of 52 emerging farmers from Gobabis in the Omaheke region of Namibia recently visited the Centre for Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development at the University of the Free State (UFS). The group, who comprised of several ladies and young people, are mostly small and large scale cattle farmers. They were addressed by several lecturers from the centre. Visits were also paid to among others a large goat farm in Upington and Beefmaster's feeding paddock in Christiana. The farmers wanted to acquaint themselves with animal production practices and possible food value chains and establish future business partners for their businesses.
