Alfa bywoners smul lekker aan Wagyu wat vir hulle gaar gemaak is
The NAMPO ALFA Livestock, Hunting, and Outdoor Expo took place at NAMPO Park just outside Bothaville from October 12 to October 14, 2023. Celebrating the harmonious intersection of livestock, outdoor lifestyle, and hunting, this event holds significant relevance within the South African agricultural community. The expo showcased practical demonstrations, including 4×4 vehicles, caravans, camping gear, hunting equipment, and a shooting range. Attendees had the unique opportunity to experience these aspects firsthand, immersing themselves in the practical use of various equipment. While smaller in scale compared to the annual NAMPO event held in May, the ALFA Expo drew an impressive 33% growth in attendance, with 8,330 tickets sold over the three-day period.
The Wagyu Society made a notable presence at the Wagyu house, offering visitors the chance to directly purchase Wagyu products from the breeders. In a unique twist, consumers could even request that the steaks they purchased be prepared on-site for immediate enjoyment. Within the Cattle complex, Wagyu was showcased with a bull, cow, and calf, providing onlookers with a firsthand encounter. This event underscored the ongoing interest among consumers and livestock enthusiasts to gain insights into Wagyu production and understand the nuances of preparing Wagyu to capture its enhanced flavour profile. Special thanks go to Zuney Wagyu for actively participating in educational demonstrations and facilitating direct-to-public sales. Additionally, gratitude is extended to Soldus Wagyu for contributing their animals to the event, enriching the experience for attendees who relish the opportunity to see and interact with these remarkable cattle.
