4 Provinces Farmer’s Day



We are excited to invite you to the 4 Provinces Game Farmer’s Day on Friday, 20 April at the Royal Auction Centre in Frankfort. This is a new initiative in our corner of the world: Frankfort is at the intersection of 4 Provinces: Kwa-Zulu Natal, Free State, Mpumalanga, and Gauteng. And our aspirations are to position us at one of the best game breeding regions in South Africa.

As a first step, the game industry in our area would benefit a lot through its formalisation and cooperation – and putting it on a new path of growth. As a key role player, we invite you to the INAUGURAL FARMER’S DAY on Friday, 20 April 2018 at the Royal Auction Centre in Frankfort.

The purpose of this important event is as follows:

• To discuss the value proposition and potential of the game industry in our region
• To formalise the game industry in our region in cooperation with Wildlife Ranching South Africa (WRSA), and
• To launch the Quest Game Breeders Group

Please come and join us:

Friday, 20 April 2018: 10h00 to 13h00 (followed by lunch and potential networking opportunities)
