Staff Changes
April 2014

After 3 years Welgevonden has had to say good bye to Shaun McCartney as CEO.

The Chairman summed it up as follows: I want to thank him (Shaun) for the professional and effective way in which he conducted himself and performed his duties. It was hard to put up a fight to keep him, against the competition of brewing beer with his closest friends in his home town.

De-collering an Elephant
November 2013

This animal was one of the bulls that underwent an experimental vasectomy in July 2006. The collar was put on the animal in order to be able to monitor his recovery from the procedure as well as monitor his behaviour over time. However, it was now getting a bit too tight.

September 2013

On Monday (01/09/2013), the game introductions continued with 49 impala and 11 Waterbuck being offloaded near site 10.
