The FFC search party set off on the adventure to track the absent herd which had not returned on Saturday evening as usual. While they were out, Junior – the dutiful LGD – proved his skills and value by bringing his wards back home safely. LDGs do more than manage herds, but execute the primary duty as stated by their names – to guard the wellbeing of livestock against predation. Upon their return to the Demonstration Farm they were pleasantly surprised to find that not only had the herd returned, but Junior had managed to ensure that every goat was accounted for. It is through experiences like this that our belief in the value of our LGD programme is bolstered. We celebrate Junior and every LGD diligently serving farmers and livestock in our communities.
