Bank Windhoek awards small livestock farmers

Bank Windhoek last week awarded winners of the Small Livestock Section at the recently concluded Windhoek Industrial and Agricultural Show.

Twenty-year-old Michael Johannes Garbers from Stampriet, scooped up most of the available awards including the ultimate prize, Champion of Champions Trophy in the interbreed category.

Garbers said that he was pleased with the award since the grand champion ewe is also the mother of the ram. “The ram is extraordinary and I am proud of it. The judges made the right decision,” he said.

Garbers was quick to point out that credit should similarly be given to the animal and not the breeder alone. “Although I claim this prize, it is important to note that the ultimate winner here is the animal,” he emphasised. Garbers later thanked Bank Windhoek and his parents for their support. “I really appreciate it,” he said.

The Small Livestock Section awards was hosted in collaboration with Feedmaster and the Namibia Meat Board. Below are the list of winners in various Bank Windhoek sponsored categories:
