Read Stockfarm in October 2023
The Livestock Registering Federation’s annual Stockman School at Aldam, is one of the highlights on the agricultural calendar. This year’s Stockman School will address the latest technology and management skills needed to elevate the Southern African livestock industry so that it can compete on a global scale. This issue of Stockfarm is a handy companion to the event, as it features articles on some of the topics that will be discussed, such as an additional quality system for red meat, bull selection as driver of genetic progress, and net feed intake. We also paid a visit to Bianca Lueesse, the Molatek/Landbouweekblad/Breedplan Stud Breeder of the Year for 2022.
