Snyberg Angora’s behaal
wêreldrekordprys vir bokhaar
Snyberg Boerdery van Uniondale, het geskiedenis gemaak op die 6de sybokhaarveiling wat Dinsdag 12 November in Port Elizabeth plaasgevind het. ‘n Baal winterbokkiehaar van 26.4 mikron is verkoop vir die hoogste prys van die seisoen, sowel as ‘n nuwe wêreldrekordprys van R442.00 per kilogram.
Snyberg Boerdery domineer verskeie gesogte internasionale kompetisies vir langer as ‘n dekade. Volgens Werner Ferreira lê hul sukses in die teelbeleid wat die stoetery nougeset toepas. Eienskappe soos vrugbaarhaarheid skep die platform om genoegsame aanteeldiere te produseer wat volumes produseer vir groter lotte egalige bokhaar. Hulle streef ook daarna om bokhaar van uistaande kwaliteit, bo-gemiddelde lengte en feitlik geen kemp te produseer. Hierdie besondere eienskappe het bygedra tot die gemiddelde prys van R216.71 per kilogram wat die skeersel behaal het.

Be silly this festive season, but don’t be reckless
The festive season is upon us, and with it, parties, celebrations and fireworks. In this time of merrymaking, South Africans should be careful not to let their fun end in trouble with the law, says Chantel Cronje, Legal Advisor at Legal and Tax.
“With all of the temptations of the festive season, many people behave in ways that are irresponsible and illegal,” she adds. “It is important to know the laws of the country and the bylaws of your own city or town, and to enjoy yourself within their limits.”
Drunk driving
Many South Africans get the unwanted gift of a criminal record during the festive season after being caught driving under the influence of alcohol. “Police step up roadblocks over the holiday season, so one’s chance of getting caught driving after a drink too many increase significantly,” says Cronje.
“But apart from that driving while under the influence of alcohol is dangerous and grossly irresponsible. Research indicates that 50% of people who die on our roads have a blood alcohol concentration above 0.05 gram per 100 millilitres.
“Drunk driving kills.”
Cronje says that the National Road Traffic Act forbids drivers from driving with a legal blood alcohol limit of more than 0.05 g per 100 ml or more than 0.24 mg in 1000 ml of breath. That means that drinking more than one unit of alcohol (roughly equivalent to one drink) in an hour will put you over the limit.
Cronje advises that the only way to be completely sure that you will not be over the limit is not to drink at all before you drive, alternatively one should make use of public or private company transport services. Penalties for drunk driving are stiff – it is regarded as a serious criminal offence. For a first offence, you could have your driver’s licence suspended for six months, as well as be sentenced to a fine of up to R2 000 and/or a prison sentence of two years (normally suspended for first offenders).
Your rights if arrested for drunk driving
If you are suspected of driving drunk, you must allow the police to take a blood sample or a breathalyser test. You may be restrained to have the sample taken if you attempt to resist, says Cronje. The breathalyser reading or blood sample will be primary evidence against you when you appear before a magistrate.
You do, however, have the right to be treated with respect and dignity, even if your own behavior isn’t dignified. You will be held in custody until you are able to post bail (in certain instances bail may be denied), which will normally be when you appear before a magistrate.
Fireworks
New Year’s Eve and Christmas normally see the skies lit up by fireworks, but many South Africans seem unaware of the laws that govern them, Cronje says. Breaking the laws and regulations around fireworks is a criminal offense.
Some points worth keeping in mind before you go crackers include:
• Fireworks may be exploded on private property only.
• Most fireworks are prohibited: fireworks larger than 25mm x 4mm, anything incorporating uncontrolled flight, Roman candles, any firework not made with ‘black

Welkome reën
Welkome reen visrivier
CRADOCK
Boere in die distrik is verheug oor heerlike reën wat die afgelope twee dae oor die gebied uitgesak het.
Op die dorp self is Vrydag en Saterdag 75mm aangeteken terwyl dit ook goed gereën het op plase in die distrik. Elandsdrift wyk, oos van die dorp, het tot 102 mm reën gekry terwyl die gemiddeld vir die res van die distrik tussen 45mm en 80 mm is. Die Groot Visrivier het in vloed afgekom en In sommige gevalle het plaaspaaie verspoel.
Volgens boere sal die veld nou baie goed groei aangesien die opvolg reën van die naweek baie nodig was na die neerslag van twee weke gelede
