Cattle ranches


Preface :

Through centuries of South African histroy, development of the farming indusrty has been a prime factor governing the growth of the countries economy. From a modest vegetable garden established at the Cape by Jan van Riebeeck to provide passing Indiamen with fresh produce it has become a multi-million rand industry employing more people than any other sector in South Africa.

The South African character was built around the farmer and the land. This identity remains and so do the farmers whose place in our society is no less important than was the place of their ancestors.
