In remembrance: Henk van Wyk


It is with great sadness that Agri SA takes note of the death of Henk van Wyk.

Henk was a great man – in the agricultural sector and in the hearts of those who knew him. He was the president of Agri Northern Cape for the past seven years and was also closely involved with Agri SA.

Henk represented farmers from the Northern Cape at Agri SA’s general council and later members of the general affairs council at Agri SA’s board. He was also the deputy chairman of Agri SA’s general affairs chamber and until his death the chairman of the Agri SA Centre of Excellence: Economics and Trade.

Henk farmed with sheep on his farm Vondelingsfontein in the Calvinia-district. He was also a breeder of Dorper sheep.

“Henk left his mark and contagious optimism at every meeting and every event,” said Omri van Zyl, Agri SA Executive Director.

Henk unwaveringly believed in the future of agriculture in South Africa.

“His pragmatic approach to the agricultural sector, the person that he is, his jokes and his stories will be sorely missed,” said Dan Kriek, Agri SA President.

The Agri SA management and personnel extends their best wishes to Henk’s family in these difficult times.
