Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

This week Plaas TV brought viewers more interesting content, and this is #flashbackfriday. Below is a recap of the week’s episodes:

  • Nile is a platform that establishes direct links between farmers and buyers in the agricultural sector, and recently opened a cutting-edge distribution hub, enhancing efficiency and freshness for farmers and consumers alike. Plaas TV also attended this launch.
  • In this follow-up discussion on rBST, dr Tod Collins focuses on the effect that this hormone has on reproduction in dairy cows, how safe it is for human consumption and what its benefit is for producers.

  • Labworld, ’n afdeling van Philafrica Foods, word sedert 2019 gekontrakteer om ontledings vir die Santam Landbou Nasionale Kuilvoerkompetisie uit te voer. Hulle is ook ‘n trotse borg van hierdie kompetisie. Dr Elrisa Taljaard gee nou terugvoer oor hul betrokkenheid.
  • Every year, the fourth-year Animal Science students of the Department of Animal Science at University of Pretoria, participate in a feedlot challenge where they must take care of animals earmarked for meat consumption. This is the first year during which students had to rear broiler chickens, instead of cattle or sheep. Plaas Media was the proud media partner of this year’s challenge and Elanco, the main sponsor.
