    Stof is ons en tot stof sal ons terugkeer… Al gooi die stedelinge die grond toe onder teer en beton, verskans hulleself agter elektriese drade, staalheinings, glasvensters en vind hulle inkomste deur op swart plastiekboksies op nagemaakte houttafels in lugversorgde kantore te tik. Al koop hulle kos in verseëlde plastiekpakke en smul aan nagemaakte geure, […] More

    Zambia has just lost its biggest honey export contract. Apparently a recent consignment of pure honey arriving in South Africa was contaminated with the American Foulbrood (Paenibacillus larvae) disease.

    ‘n Leier moet mos voorloop. Die pas aangee… So waarom wys Cyril Ramaphosa ons nie hoe hy sy eiendomme beskikbaar stel vir onteiening sonder vergoeding nie? Of dit nou ‘n wildsplasie, beesplasie of ‘n huisie by die see is, die land se “grondhonger” massas sal dit sekerlik met groot vrug kan beplak. Ons weet almal […] More

    Ons is ’n klein en hegte familie hier by ProAgri en as een van ons skielik weggeneem word maak dit seer. Stefan van Wyk was meer as ’n kollega. Hy was ’n vriend, ’n staatmaker en ’n vertroueling. Hy het my senuwees klaargemaak as hy soms op no 99 eers wegtrek met sy maand se […] More

    The foot and mouth disease outbreak in Chisamba, in the exact area where the Agritech show was held, came as a huge shock and initially put a damper on the show.

    Die Hopewell-suiwelplaas in die Oos-Kaap wat die regering vir R8,8-miljoen gekoop het as ‘n swartbemagtigingsplaas het nog in 2016 188 koeie in melk gehad en ongeveer 1 000 liter melk per dag gelewer. Vandag is daar 50 koeie oor en hulle produseer minder as 50 liter melk elke dag. Dit is een van die verhale van […] More
