Read Stockfarm in March

The year has sped out of the racing blocks and the March 2018 edition of Stockfarm is already on the shelves. Autumn comes with its own challenges, especially in respect of diseases and feed. Livestock farmers have to plan carefully to overcome these challenges, especially with winter just around the corner and some areas still in the grips of drought. The March 2018 edition contains technical information that focuses on managing this critical time on the livestock farm.

Insurance remains a management aspect that no farmer can do without. It is often regarded as a grudge expense but one which we cannot ignore, as it leaves us unprotected and vulnerable. For this reason we revisit the subject every year and we once again look at insurance, this time focusing on crop insurance and the small-scale farmer.

Also look forward to articles on:

  • Kemp in wool.
  • The lion hunting industry.
  • Boerboel breeding.
  • Damara farming in Namibia.
  • Sisal farming in the Eastern Cape.
  • Feeding of lions.
  • Winter licks.
  • Ewe nutrition in the lambing season.
  • Silage talk.
  • Buffalo breeding.
