In April I had an amazing experience visiting Angora goat people in Turkey. I was fortunate to meet with Dr Irfan Daskiran, who is the leading Angora expert in Turkey. With his help and knowledge (and that of driver Mr Fatih Koksal and translator Merve Altan) I was able to visit some local Angora farmers, visit the closed flock of Angoras at Lalahan (near Ankara) and spend some time in the technical Laboratory there. Also, I met with the manager of Turkish Mohair/ Boyner Holdings – Mr Onur Yilidirim, the main buyer of Turkish Mohair – and Mr Hasan Kilinc who is the Director of the Small Ruminants Union for the Ankara area. A fascinating, clever, and helpful group of people who freely shared their enthusiasm and knowledge of Angoras, Turkish farming and culture.
