She said: “I’d say that age isn’t the issue. Let me put it this way: Being older is not a disadvantage. I see who gets called back for follow up interviews, and it is just as likely to be an older candidate as a younger one. 7 over is where I like to keep it, more or less.

Seabirds are farmed effectively in Iceland, crocodiles and butterflies in Papua New Guinea, ostriches in South Africa and Texas, and a broad variety of species in Zimbabwe. Since Zimbabwe declared a reservation to the Appendix I listing for crocodiles, crocodile farming has become a multi million dollar business there and is growing in Malawi.
