Museum Fund Raising Events
An enthusiastic group of Darling residents braved the cold in late July to attend a talk by Michael Duckitt titled, “The breed from the past for the future….. Nguni”. The Duckitt family have farmed on Weylands Farm for six generations but have only been farming Nguni cattle for about 13 years. There was no doubting his passion for this unique breed of cattle which is special to southern Africa. A hybrid of different Indian and later European cattle breeds, they were introduced to southern Africa during their migration from the north of the continent. They are readily seen grazing in the fields around Darling. Many thanks Michael for a well researched and educational talk.
