Mohair Farmers Going From Strength To Strength
In March this year the Wienand family of Olivewoods Farm near Cookhouse in the Eastern Cape, donated 20 young Angora rams to partners of the Mohair Empowerment Trust.

The driving force behind the trust is Beauty Mokgwamme, who is currently supervising ten projects in the Eastern Cape.

Relaying the trust’s thanks, she spoke to Stockfarm about the event at Olivewoods and the great partnership and relationship the trust is building with the Wienand family. “I am happy and excited to be part of this wonderful industry, and we really appreciate the generous offer the Wienand family has made to help our emerging farmers.”

During the handover ten Mohair Empowerment Trust partners (farms) received two Angora rams each. The current partners are:

• Mzwakhe Ndlela: Eureka (Adelaide).

• George Saleni: Brakfontein (Cookhouse).

• Linda and Simphiwe Fani: Doornrivier (Somerset East).

• Lloyd James: Driefontein (Somerset East).
