Dairy goat farmers – and anyone interested in small stock dairy – can once again get free advice from the experts at the fifth annual Dairy Goat Information Day on Thursday 11 October 2018 during Agri-Expo Livestock at Sandringham outside Stellenbosch.
According to Breyton Milford, Operations Manager at Agri-Expo, the information day is one of the agricultural society’s projects to empower and inform new entrants to agriculture, in partnership with the Western Cape Department of Agriculture.
“The aim of the information day is to develop skills, improve market access and promote sustainability,” says Milford. “This is a valuable opportunity for small stock farmers to learn more about dairy goat farming and the potential of this growing industry.”
This year’s programme once again includes experts from across the country:
According to Mouton, strong growth in the consumption of goat products holds huge potential for the industry. “However, there is also a great need for basic education,” says Mouton. “The way we convey knowledge during this information day means progress for the industry as well as its value chain.”
The Dairy Goat Information Day takes place from 08:00 to 13:00 in the Standard Bank Conference Centre. Attendance is free of charge, but seating is limited to 120 people. For registration and enquiries, contact Breyton Milford at 021 975 4440 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
