Hatchery Manager,Farms Manager,Production Manager,General Manager,Sales and Marketing Manager,Sales Director
Position COO. Above business was bought by Lurex Feeds, Barberton (Mpumalanga)
1983.At that time 8000 laying hens.This was increased over the following months to 130,000 hens and all production sold into the local market in Nelspruit and surrounding area(Mbombela).In 1985 the business was sold and another chicken business purchased east of Whiteriver,25km north of Nelspruit.
This business had many basic production faults and within six months it was on track to break even.At that point the owner failed to make the necessary extra capital investment required as interest rates had climed to the 25% level by July/August 1985.I new what was coming and started a new position on 01/09/1985 in The Orange Free State.Liquidation occurred where I had left some # months later.
