The young men from TOYOTA, Pierre van Niekerk and the Chair Andre Scholtz.
Andre and his Commitee, of course, organising this proud event in the South Africa Game Industry for the Sable Study group.
I have trouble loading Mr Piet Warren' s pictures, those I have received. My apologies for that. I provide therefore one of his previous animals, Sam, the bull, belonging now to Gerrie van der Merwe and Frans Schutte. I will ask Jan Bez of www.landbou.com if he is with all his wisdom able to upload it.
The production sale of extremely quality sable antelope on Saturday July 11, 2009, at the Selati Game Pens on Gravelotte, again prove to be one of the proudest moments of proven success of private game entrepreneurships on the South African Game Industry calendar.
Mnr Piet Warren offer some of the very best sable genetics on offer to buyers.
The awe and amazement of the sable species, saved by the vision and private entrepreneurship of the Gravelotte Sable Study, grab the imagination of the animal loving world.
Across the world, many emblems are based on the awe of this proud antelope’s face and horns. This animal represents in nature the fiercest of fighters on living earth, extreme intelligence and well known to be only contained by the greatest of beast in Nature.
Gravelotte Sable Study Group have ensured that these proud animals were not wiped off the face of the earth and with kind care and great investment in the animals well being, they have increased these animals from 417 in 1995 to almost 1500 animals currently.
Great care is also taken by group members, ensuring that the gene pool are well planned to prevent inbreeding at all costs between the breeders.
Hats need to be lifted and ‘n knee bend to the Gravelotte Sable Study group for their fine effort ensuring the sable specie are still part of the future and it’s beauty the pride emblem of the African antelope diversity.
Well done Gravelotte Sable Study Group under the fine chairmanship of Mr Andre Scholtz. Well done Piet Warren and all the sable breeders of the study group.
Best wishes for this production sale on Saturday. Thank you for making the South African Game Industry proud with your image.
