Hopefully in the correct thread

A very good friend of mine has a small game farm with various buck and a small herd of 24 Nguni (11 calves and rest big cows- think two bulls in there as well) in the Vanwyksdorp area and things are tough and dry out there. They have lost a fair amount of game- real sad and some of the Nguni calves are looking pretty bad.  Besides the lucern bales getting drier the price is also going from R90  to R120. Is there anyone who has land in the Riversdal area where the cows can taken and kept for a while and anyone with good green lucern for sale-all help appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Can the calves not be weaned and sold to reduce the feed bill?   If he decides to go that route and depending upon the gender, I may be interested.
