Read Stockfarm in August

For a long time, it was believed that livestock largely contributed to the degradation of soil and the release of greenhouse gases. In recent times, however, this approach has been extensively reviewed. Because between 20 and 40% of the earth’s land area is covered by grasslands, many scientists now believe that, with the correct management of livestock on grasslands, it could reduce carbon emissions and levels in the atmosphere to such an extent, that the effects of climate change can be reversed.

Stockfarm takes a look at conservation agriculture and the interplay between livestock and the advantages of this type of farming. The August edition also feature articles on calf rearing for optimal lactation, buying the right bull or ram, and lumpy skin disease.

Also look forward to the following articles:

  • Best shearing practices and facilities (Part 2): Guidelines for better working hours and methods.
  • Oom Schalk talks … trailer weights.
  • Successful lamb creep feeding and ‘sheep psychology’.
  • The value of crop residues for backgrounding.
  • Silage crops (Part 2): Sweet forage sorghum silage.
  • Tips for a successful AI programme.
  • Practical application of milk reports on the farm.
  • Seven key aspects of livestock marketing.
  • And much more!

Lees Veeplaas in Augustus

Augustus verteenwoordig die hartjie van die sogenaamde doodmaakmaande, maar dit beteken ook die lente is om die draai en die kalfseisoen kom nader. Dit is nou die tyd om koeivoeding aan te pas, die grond vir lente- en someraanplantings voor te berei, en voorsorg te tref teen seisoenale parasiete. Die Augustus-uitgawe van Veeplaas bevat verskeie artikels wat veeboere sal help om hierdie bedrywige tyd behoorlik te bestuur.

Die beheer van roofdiere is ’n belangrike bestuursaspek by veral kleinveeboerderye, en soms ook waar grootvee deur hoë roofdierdruk bedreig word. In ons hoofartikel in Augustus, skyn Izak Hofmeyr die soeklig op hierdie belangrike kwessie, deur die ekonomiese impak en holistiese bestuur van predasie in Suid-Afrika van nader te bekyk.

  • Taaibosch vat voor met eersteklas teling
  • Louwcoe Charolais: Sweet en passie betaal
  • Goeie skeerpraktyke en -geriewe (Deel 2). Lees deel 1 hier.
