Why Join us?
We have a range of support and benefits for our members. We are working towards expanding members education and understanding of the animals and animal husbandry. Through this we can keep improving the breed. We cannot forget that many of our members keep Boers for many purposes, from hobby breeder to commercial enterprises, and so we try and support all aspects of breeding.
We have exclusive offers and discount from businesses for our members, forums for our members to chat but more importantly support from each other. When our members log in to the members’ area they can then access their grassroots account, where they can manage their herd. If they do not wish to download and print the forms to return via post, they can simply use grassroots to complete animal transfers, registrations and other animal management.
When you become a member, depending on your membership you will receive magazines and newsletters throughout the year. No matter your membership type you will be invited to seminars and learning days. If you cannot attend these, we aim to upload a majority of the day via web link, or videos so no member is left out.
