MAY LOUW – VLAKLEEGTE
May manages Vlakleegte consisting of 10 000ha and 1000 ewes. She and her late husband Derick Louw has been living on the farm since 1955. For 8 years May (78 years) has been managing the farm independently with the help of labourers and produces fine Karoo lamb to the public.
May farms with Dorper sheep and produces fine and healthy Karoo lamb. Vlakleegte is a very flat piece of land and it is important to evaluate the sheep and keep them safe from any disturbances which may influence their growth and lifestyle.
May is a true Karoo farmer by heart and soul and sets a good example for all farmers.
