Farmers get discounted feed mealies

About fifty farmers in the Aberdeen district were able to benefit last weekend from the generosity of some Free State residents.

Fully aware of the problems experienced in this area due to the drought, three farmers in the Heilbron district gave the local farmers a discounted rate on the product. A donation from VKB, a well-known agricultural business in the Free State, was used to subsidise the transport costs, so the combined generosity of the Free State farmers and VKB enabled the local farmers to buy in the much-needed feed. Mealies are a very important part of the diet for the livestock, both for energy and roughage, so the arrival on Saturday of 1360 bags, each containing 50kg, was greatly appreciated by all the beneficiaries.
