NEWSLETTER

July 2018

Welcome to our first Newsletter under your new committee.  The committee was elected at the General Meeting held at the Nguni Stand, Royal Show, Pietermaritzburg on 26th May 2018.  Nico thanks all those who attended the meeting, were available to be on the committee and the positive feed back.  The committee will endeavour to do all it can for the good of the Club and the Nguni breed.

Please feel free to contact any of the committee with ideas, issues etc.  We depend on your interaction.

Our objective is to try and get fellow Nguni breeders motivated and keen again.  One does not have to be a stud breeder to be a member – commercial breeders as well as retired Nguni farmers are welcome to join or rejoin.  You are all welcome.  The subs are still only R300 per annum.  What we can share about the Nguni cattle is worth far more than that to each of us.  Outstanding subs prior to 2018 will be waived, so you are urged to pay your current 2018-19 subs and remain a member.

To motivate membership, the committee are planning the following:

  • Annual open/info days – invite Nguni farmers from other provinces to talk.
  • Annual Nguni Tour – Feb/March in a 20 seater bus.
  • Visit Agricultural Colleges – encourage to use Ngunis.
  • New Buyer Info day – inform buyers what to look for in an animal.
  • Nguni Breeders Society – can do courses for members.
  • Newsletter – to keep members informed about ideas and decisions, sales, animals for sale etc.
  • Feed back from members - VIP

Before going any further, we would like to express our sincere thanks to Cesaltina for all her hard work and effort in producing the previous award winning Newsletter.  She tried very hard to keep it going but we, as members, let her down with our lack of feedback.

Whilst we would also like feedback and input from the members, this Newsletter is primarily to keep you, the member, informed of events, sales etc.  It will be sent out after meetings and before a Club sale.  You are invited to submit articles, sale animals, snippets etc for the Newsletter.

The committee plan on Honouring members, who will be selected at the committee’s discretion within guidelines, at an appropriate function – possibly a special day at the 2019 Royal Show.
