While the drought continues, and a difficult winter awaits many farmers, things are looking positive for agriculture as a whole, as this sector remains one of the pillars of the country’s economy and job market. It is a sector that is continuously growing and intensifying, with technology at the centre of it all. In good times and bad, Stockfarm provides farmers with much needed technical information to assist them in planning their seasonal activities and their businesses.
