Written by John Mowbray
CAPE TOWN – Only properly managed livestock will save the planet from the devastating effects of desertification – that was the message of keynote speaker, Allan Savory, on day two of this year’s IWTO wool textile event in South Africa. “The importance of this issue to your industry is just mind-boggling,” Savory told a wool industry audience which appeared alarmed and intrigued in equal measure by the renowned environmentalist's unusually frank address.
