They Said It
"I am exchanging the land of meat and magic for the land of milk and honey. Taking up the reigns as Editor of The Dairy Mail and Public Relations Manager of the Milk Producers Organization." - Michelle de Lange, outgoing GM of the Red Meat Industry Forum in Pretoria.
"Yes, acclimatized very quickly - no choice in the matter." - Apeco's Karen Bowman in Pinetown, agreeing that a week into the working year, the holiday seemed a long time ago. Of course, some of us didn't go on holiday at all.
