No transport carriers are provided and livestock is to be collected from the farm by the purchaser or their
employed animal travel agent.
When collecting livestock from our farm, please bring appropriate animal transport carriers.
These must be of a suitable size, preferably out of a solid material such as a light wood, with plenty of
ventilation holes. Hay should be placed on the bottom of the carrier.
Water bottles with nipples can be fixed to the crate. Apples and carrots should be provided in the crate.
This will minimise stress during transit, especially on a longer journey. In advance, purchase Protexin, a
probiotic and Stress Pac, a vitamin supplement.
Feed this to the animals as prescribed, for a few days after transporting them to help minimise stress.
Anyone within South Africa who wishes to fly animals to another area, please see below contact details of
animal transport agencies we are aware of.
Transport carriers must be supplied by whichever agent you employ as they are aware of the airlines

that they have examined each permanently identified animal and they are in good health.
Firstly all our livestock is permanently tattooed and identifiable as an individual as such.
We are prepared to transport animals to our Private Veterinarian and obtain this health certificate for a single
batch of animals due to be exported for a fee (As at July 2017 - ZA Rand 1200-00 per import permit).
This vetting however, will only be done on your behalf, once all due funds have been deposited and cleared by
our bank. Any other requirements of your import permit such as State Veterinarian or transportation needs are
for you to arrange. See below for a list of animal travel agents we are aware of.

at time of collection.
