    For many of us, it is time of year to leave the farm. That is if you are fortunate enough to have the time and money and reliable managers to look after your interests while you enjoy your well-deserved holiday. But as a rule, the beginning of the year is not a good time to […] More

    ProAgri 214 – Desember 2017

    Met hael wat tot 75 cm diep lê by Heilbron, ‘n tornado deur Deneysville, brande in Bainskloof, verspoelings in die ooste, droë damme in die Wes-Kaap en sakke vol mieliepitte wat nog wag om geplant te word in die sentrale westelike dele, lyk dit of die weer nog vir baie koöperasiepraatjies, moeilike besluite en seergeknielde […] More

    ProAgri 213 – November 2017

    Droogte is nie net ’n natuurverskynsel nie. Ek stem saam met Burre Burger, een van die helde wat na vore getree het om droogtehulp aan boere te organiseer, dat mense ook kan ly onder droogte in alle fasette van hulle lewe. Hy self het opgestaan uit ’n droogte van moedeloosheid en hoop gevind deur hulp aan […] More

    ProAgri 212 – Oktober 2017

    During the recent Stanbic Bull Sale hosted by the Herdbook Society of Zambia, Dr Austin Mwape, Stanbic Bank’s Chairman, said that 70% of the Zambian population is employed by agriculture.

    ProAgri 211 – September 2017

    Daar is ’n 20+ Klub en dit het niks met ouderdom te doen nie. Dit is die groepie boere wat al meer as 20 ton per hektaar mielies gestroop het. “Dis mos gans onmoontlik!” sou my oupa gesê het. In sy dae was boerdery nog ’n leefstyl met heelwat rugbreekwerk tussendeur; vandag is dit bloedsweet […] More
