“My farm supports four people”


“I completed a poultry production course at Buhle in 2015, and now run a farm with up to 3000 chickens per cycle in Brakpan,” says Lebogang Molefe. “This farm is paying the rent and buying food for our family of four, and providing one more full-time job. The Buhle training was excellent, which is why my farm is doing so well, and the support officer filled in the gaps.

“He taught me when to slaughter my birds to help me make a profit, and to change the chicks’ bedding frequently to keep them healthy. He has also advised me to diversify, so we are planning to go into pigs and vegetables, because our soil is very rich.

“Buhle has played a major, major role in our lives. It has been superb. I would recommend them to anybody.”
