Castle de Wildt Game Breeders Seminar
Game Breeders Seminar 2016 and 2017
The 2016 Golden Breeders Game Breeders Seminar was held at Castle de Wildt, Modimolle from 2 – 4 June 2016. An interesting programme included speakers introducing delegates to a variety of topics ranging from game breeding techniques to basic farming principles, feeding, disease identification and control.
Delegates were privileged to a very interesting practical session where our local vet, Dr Marius Louw, darted some animals and explained all aspects of DNA profiling, horn measurement, the taking of blood and hair samples for DNA profiling, as well as tagging and record keeping systems.
Due to the enormous success of the 2016 Game Breeders seminar, Castle de Wildt hosted a similar seminar from 7 – 9 June 2017.
