The innovative DWF Livestock Support programme is the subject of a feature article in the influential Farmer’s Weekly magazine, out this week.

Headlined “Improving animal health in rural Eastern Cape”, the three-page spread follows a day spent by journalist Grant Hollins in the field visiting livestock owners with the DWF team of Ralph Spence and Richard Ndoko.

The article outlines how the programme works with comments from DWF staff and beneficiaries including details on the programme’s long-term goals.

Farmer’s Weekly is published by Caxton Magazines and is over 100 years old, with its first edition appearing on 18 March 1911.

Did you know? The magazine was one of the few magazines future leaders such as Nelson Mandela and Walter Sisulu were allowed to read while imprisoned on Robben Island, according to Caxton’s website.
