Simmentaler breeder Andre Ellis says the nationals only take place once every four years. He says they are very excited to be holding the event in Lichtenburg this time around.
“The cattle will arrive in Lichtenburg on Monday, 24 April, then we start showing on Tuesday afternoon from 2pm. On Wednesday we will show the female animals, male animals on Thursday and then we have our auction on Friday.
“We would really like to invite listeners to come and attend the show.”
Ellis says about 45 breeders from across the country will be participating, with more than 500 Simmentalers to be exhibited.
