KLEIN KAROO OSTRICH MEAT IS SAFE

kkilogovectorIntroduction

Consumers of Klein Karoo International ostrich meat can be sure of healthy, safe meat on their plates. In spite of Avian Influenza present in the ostrich industry for the past 18-24 months special measures have been introduced to ensure that ostrich meat products sold in retail are always safe.

Avian Influenza

The Avian Influenza found in ostriches is not the same as the virus that chickens contract. As a precautionary measure, South Africa does not export any raw ostrich meat currently even though there is no connection between the avian influenza that affects ostriches and the influenza that affects chickens or people.

All ostriches are tested individually for the presence of the Avian Influenza virus 28 days prior to slaughtering. No ostrich that has contracted the virus is allowed to enter the Klein Karoo processing facilities and therefore also not the food chain. These functions are controlled daily by the South African Department of Agriculture: Veterinary Services.

South African Masters Athletic Championships

Photos 705Age has nothing to do with how young you feel! That was very evident at the 37th South African Masters Athletic Championships held in Oudtshoorn on 26 - 27 April 2013.

About 360 athletes took part in field and track events. The oldest athlete being close to 90 years young!

IMG 7296The South Western Districts came third among all the provinces. In total 25 South African records were broken, of which two were re-set by Heleen Knobel for discus and mass throwing, and Toy Ungerer who improved her own record for long jump by 6 cm.

It was a privilege for Klein Karoo International to be a part of this national sporting event.

Klein Karoo sponsored ostrich meat for the prize giving function for all the athletes and role players and added a nice bite of ostrich droëwors in the goody bags for these sporty veterans.

Come on! Be fit for life!
