Read Stockfarm in January

Soil erosion is the cause of severe topsoil losses in South Africa. It also dehydrates the affected landscape and reduces the capacity of strategic infrastructure such as reservoirs. By collecting and storing rainwater in the soil, the flow of water can be slowed down before it causes damage.

In this issue of Stockfarm ARC-Agricultural Engineering shares several affordable and relatively easy-to-understand techniques to combat soil erosion.

This month we are also launching the Veeplaas Climate Smart Ambassador Competition – read the magazine for full details. Added to the mix are articles on the role of the veterinarian in your dairy herd’s success, the Santam Agriculture National Silage Competition winners, and what to look for when buying a Boer goat.

Also look forward to the following articles:

  • Entrepreneurship in agriculture.
  • Oom Schalk talks … selling affordable 4x4s.
  • Bosvelder sheep trump the challenges.
  • Impact of desertification on agriculture.
  • Prevent weaning shock in lambs.
  • The role of growth tests in the breeding of profitable small stock.
  • Take the necessary precautions against heartwater.
  • Automated farming: One-man farms are now a reality.
  • Farm dwellers’ right to install electricity in their homes.
  • And much more!

Lees Veeplaas in Januarie

Genetiese verbetering in enige kudde is slegs moontlik wanneer beter produserende diere geselekteer en probleemdiere uitgeskot word. Sonder beplande seleksie of uitskot, is kuddebestuur bloot ’n oefening in dierevermeerdering met onwaarskynlike genetiese vordering.

Die gereelde uitskot van ouer of probleemdiere, of vroulike diere wat gereeld oorslaan, verseker verhoogde kuddeproduktiwiteit en volhoubare reproduksie. In die Januarie-uitgawe van Veeplaas kyk kenners na die beginsels van uitskot, tyd van uitskot, asook die bemarking van uitskotdiere.
