The Dohne Merino course for students of the Central University of Technology (CUT), Bloemfontein took place on the 4th and 5th of May. After completing the Theoretical part of the course on the premises of CUT, the practical sessions were hosted by Mr. Wicus Jacobs (Tweekoppen Dohnes, Reddersburg) for the first time. The course was attended by 45 very enthusiastic and well behaved students. Congratulations to MP Lelatsa with a highest mark of 66 percent. A special thank you to Mr. Wicus Jacobs who also allowed the students to observe laparoscopic insemination of his stud ewes by Dr. Johan Steyn of Ramsem, Bloemfontein. Thank you to Mr. Wouter Vorster (BKB) who assisted as practical instructor. This course is very popular and enrollment had to be restricted in order to keep practical sessions manageable.
