Castle de Wildt Family Auction

Golden Breeders Family Auction -2017


After careful consideration, the members of Golden Breeders – Bernard Groenewald, owner of Castle de Wildt, and Barry York of York Safaris – announced the postponement of the Golden Breeders Family Auction, scheduled for the 23rd of September 2017 at Castle de Wildt, Modimolle, Limpopo.

Golden Breeders is of the opinion that the Family Auction deserves a more suitable date, earlier on the wildlife auctions year calendar, and are working towards securing such date for the Family Auction in 2018.

Golden Breeders would like to ensure all Golden Breeders Family members that the decision to postpone the auction is purely based on current market trends and with their best interests at heart. The association remains, and Golden Breeders encourage all Family Members to continue their ranching endeavours focusing on breeding exceptional genetics.
