A highlight is the South African Poultry Show Championship and big screen poultry auction to be held next Friday, July 3 at Mega PetEx. According to Albert Lingenfelder, National Chairperson of the South African Show Poultry Organisation (SASPO) more than 3 000 entries were received.
Albert is very pleased that the National Championship will be held during Mega PetEx. He believes that the responsibility to care for animals are a sure cure for crime, drugs and unemployment. “Pets instill responsibility and a sense of duty.” All breeders and show poultry owners can buy purebred poultry at the direct camera-to-screen championship auction. Buyers need to be at Mega Park to see the birds on sale on the big screen”.
