Introduction to the SA Large Herds Conference

Ever since a Large Herds Conference was first mooted for South Africa during the latter part of 1998, there has been a growing interest from farmers and industry alike both here and overseas.  News spread fast and requests for more information are regularly received from various European countries, North America, South America, and several from New Zealand.

This year the SA Large Herds Conference is celebrating its 25th anniversary and since the first conference in 1999, several overseas delegates have attended the twelve conferences held to date.

The biggest challenge facing the organising committee as always, is to find a big enough venue! The Milk Producer’s Organisation (MPO) will host the 2024 conference at the Sun International Board Walk Hotel in Gqeberha (previously named Port Elizabeth), and colloquially referred to as P.E. from 26 to 28 May 2024.
