The House of Fibre – Hoër Landbouskool Marlow collaboration yields success!
The House of Fibre, together with Mohair South Africa and Hoër Landbouskool Marlow, hosted a very successful Mohair Training course from the 27th – 29th July 2021 in Cradock, Eastern Cape.
The course, which is conducted twice a year, was facilitated by The House of Fibre’s Field and Technical team, comprising of Gary Willows, a senior field officer, as well as Elrin Davids, Mohair Technical Officer from the warehouse in Port Elizabeth. They were assisted by Riano Greyling, Mohair South Africa’s Technical Officer.
The course had a total of 41 young attendees. They were trained on understanding the standards of mohair sorting, management of Angora Goats, the classing of mohair, as well as judging the animals. After completion of the course, the students were thoroughly tested.
The House of Fibre sees a bright future in the Mohair and Fibre Industry and prides itself in taking an active and participative role in grooming the future generation on how to handle this noble fibre, and the animals that produce it.
