The countrywide COVID-19 lockdown has had a massive impact on our economy as a whole, and the media industry has certainly not been spared. During these trying times, we are however extremely thankful for the agricultural industry that we serve – this is the one industry that can keep on doing what they do best, namely to keep our food value chain secure.
Although Plaas Media continues to serve agriculture through our daily online platforms, social media, our radio programme @RSG Landbou, as well as @Grootplaas on kykNET, our printed magazines have come to a halt. But while the lockdown does not allow for magazine sales at this time, the show must certainly go on!
All of our subscribers to @Farmbiz and @Stockfarm will receive online PDF versions, either by Whatsapp or by email. And for those who support us so loyally every month by purchasing magazines from retail stores, you can download your free April PDF version here to keep on reading during #lockdown!
To download from Dropbox:
If you would prefer to receive a Whatsapp version, please send a Whatsapp message to 064 890 6941 with the message: Whatsapp Stockfarm April 2020 or Whatsapp Farmbiz April 2020.
The May editions of both magazines will be available on retail shelves by 27 April. If, however, you enjoy reading the April digital versions, do give consideration to subscribing to the online versions as this will ensure on-time and unimpeded delivery. This can be done by:
- Subscribing at www.magzter.com
- Or by contacting Beauty Mthombeni at email email@example.com of SMS “Subscribe” to 064 890 6941 so that you can receive the online version either in your inbox or on Whatsapp.
Until then, please be safe and stick to the lockdown rules. Our country cannot afford more downtime and it is up to each of us to take responsibility, so that businesses can survive and trade as normal as soon as possible. This will only happen if we each do our bit.
Enjoy the read!
