Veldmaster committee promises to take breed to new heights



WINDHOEK – A total of 62 Veldmaster sheep will participate at this year’s Windhoek Industrial and Agricultural Show at the end of this month.

This was decided last week during the Veldmaster Breeders Association’s annual general meeting (AGM) in Windhoek where Zirk Coetzee was elected chairperson. Coetzee’s message was loud and clear that much more will from now on be done to promote this breed and great enthusiasm was expressed to bolster the Veldmaster breed. Compulsory farm selection will no longer apply and Veldmaster breeders can from now on request such selection sessions from the association. Various courses for Veldmaster breeders will be presented this October as well as judging courses.

 Producers are asked to donate a Veldmaster before the start of the Windhoek Show to boost the funds of the association that is struggling with members not paying their annual fees. 

Coetzee warned that breeders who are indebted to the association will not be allowed to partake in any shows this year until they have settled their accounts with the association. Coetzee also announced that the association is seeking to establish its own office and employ a secretary to run day-to-day administrative duties.
