Read Stockfarm in September

In September we greet spring, but not necessarily in all its glory, as this is typically a difficult time on many a livestock farm. Grazing will not yet have recovered from the harsh winter and large parts of the country is subjected to sudden and intense cold spells, leading to ill-timed livestock losses. But at Stockfarm we tackle every season with a positive attitude and content designed to help the livestock farmer plan for the coming season. This edition is no different and once again contains a wealth of information aimed at better livestock management.

Look forward to articles on:

  • Import and export opportunities for local agriculture.
  • Commercialising communal wool sheep producers.
  • Conservation farming.
  • The ostrich leather industry.
  • Training for profitable and sustainable agriculture.
  • Summer grazing as a cover crop.
  • Nutrition in the mating season.
  • Formulating rations based on fatty acids.
  • Successful game capture.
  • Controlling wireworm inspring.
  • Clostridial diseases.
  • Planning for tough times on the farm.
