Wicus Jacobs Employed by MacFarlane Pheasants

Wicus Jacobs is currently an employee at MacFarlane Pheasants Inc. He has only lived in America for a short time and will only live here 10 months. He came to our farm from Christiana North West, South Africa. 

Christiana is an agricultural town on the banks of the Vaal River in the North-West Province of South Africa. The town was established in 1870 when diamonds were found on the banks of the Vaal River. Beef, maize, sorghum, ground nuts, and cotton are important economic products for Christiana. 

Wicus lived with his parents and worked as a cattle farm manager in his homeland. It is quite a different story in America. Wicus lives in a big house with a bunch of other guys and is learning all about pheasant farming. When he returns to his homeland, Wicus will return to cattle farming. He is happy to say though, that he will return with a great deal of knowledge about pheasants and life in America. He also told us that his experience working as part of a team has been very important to his work at MacFarlane Pheasants, because it is definitely a job for team players! 

Wicus’ favorite part of his job is the people he works with at MacFarlane Pheasants, which makes us quite happy. We all know that a pleasant workplace with people you enjoy makes learning new information much easier. Wicus is focusing on learning new skills every day! 

He also told us that daily life is not much different from his homeland except for living with so many people. Our meat tastes differently from South African meat and Wicus does miss the familiarity of South African food. Though he did add that he enjoys some American food very much. 

It is so good to get to know Wicus and we appreciate his dedication to learning new skills and being such a good team member.
