Pasture management for limited-resources farmers

Small-scale farmers with limited resources will surely benefit from a global webinar on some of the tools needed to better understand the benefits of good pasture management.

It will discuss why continuous grazing is not sufficient, how to find and create global markets for products, and unpack the importance of establishing a business entity and keeping it separate from one’s homestead. The webinar is presented by the US-based Food Animal Concerns Trust, and will kick off at 23:00 today Mzansi time. Sign up here.

Researchers, scientists, engineers, and farmers exchange and share their experiences, ideas, and research results. Click here to join the conference from 11:00 Mzansi time.
