The provincial KZN Breeders Club recently held their AGM at the Nottingham Road Hotel.
The meeting saw the KZN Breeders Club Breeders Premium Scheme discussed. The format for the scheme has changed, with breeders no longer receiving a cash claim, but a voucher to use against stallion shares, services, purchasing of mares and fillies for stud nationally.
There will also be totals set aside each year, towards the purchase of a new stallion.
In order to qualify for the scheme and for progeny to be considered #kznbred, mares need to be resident in KZN and need to return each year from out of province by 31 March.
The new Rules of the scheme are available at the following link.
Warwick Render and Cathy Martin were thanked for their extensive work on the KZN Breeders Premium Scheme and implementing the changes.
Cathy Martin remains as Chairman, with Bush Hill Stud’s Warwick Render elected as Vice Chairman. Peter Blyth of Clifton Stud has resigned as a Director, and Cathy Martin thanked Peter for his work on the Board and his experience will be missed.
Camargue Stud’s Brett Van Laun, an active breeder and owner, has purchased a farm in the beautiful area of Caversham and was elected as a Director of the KZN Breeders Club.
The current Board of the KZN Breeders Club is Cathy Martin (Chairman), Warwick Render (Vice Chairman), Bruce Le Roux, Ted Hughes, Mike McHardy and Brett Van Laun.
