Read Stockfarm in August

The August issue of Stockfarm hails a difficult period in the livestock farmer’s production schedule: the so-called killer months of August, September and October. But while these are difficult months in terms of livestock nutrition, this is also the time during which we are preparing to greet spring with new plans for the growth season.

Look forward to articles on:

  • An overview of 2018 auction and red meat price trends.
  • A farm visit to the WRSA Wildlife Rancher of the Year.
  • Extensive farming high above sea level.
  • Minerals in livestock and game.
  • Management of heifers in a heifer replacement programme.
  • Low-stress cattle handling for better productivity.
  • Skin lesions and conditions in sheep and goats.
  • An overview of rural crime and prevention devices.
  • And much more!
