A Push In The Right Direction From DARDLEA, EXCELSIOR NEWS
On Thursday the 20th of November, Mkhondo CRDP Livestock Projects paid a visit to various farms in eMkhondo. The farms are funded by DARDLEA (Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, Land and Environmental Affairs). It was a great opportunity for the community to be employed, with the new CRDP Livestock Projects. Zama-Okunzima in Mooihoek has been monitored for its progress since 2011. They received 2 bulls, 30 heifers, one ram and 25 ewes. The trained farmers have been doing very well in maintaining the livestock that were entrusted to them. Mpumelelo CPA in Berbice/ Sulphur Springs has been producing cattle as they were given 10 Drankensberg bulls to use for breeding with the female cattle they already had.
