Let’s go, Monday! The new week kicks off with episode 2 of Mzansi’s favourite farmers’ television show. Plus, there are top opportunities to learn about organic poultry and pig production and agriculture and biological science.
Episode 2 of farmers’ TV show
Tonight, in episode 2 of Vir die liefde van die land, viewers meet Alfreda Mars, an inspirational grain farmer who is breaking barriers in the Western Cape.
The ten-episode series is proudly presented by VKB in partnership with Food For Mzansi and WYRD Films. Having first aired in 2020, the show is back on popular demand in two new time-slots: Mondays at 18:30 and Sundays at 18:00. Catch tonight’s episode on VIA, DSTV channel 147.
2Organic poultry and pig production
This online conference shares unique knowledge on ration-planning, sustainable and regional feeding for pigs and poultry, and welfare self–assessment tools. It includes a policy debate targeting a wide range of audiences including policy makers, farmers and animal welfare associations, processors, feed companies and retailers. This last part might not be of interest for farmers in Mzansi, but we’re sure there will be many other things to learn during this online conference!
Agricultural and biological science
The International Conference on Agricultural and Biological Science (ICABS) will provide an opportunity for global participants to share their ideas and experience in person, with their peers expected to join from different parts of the world. In addition, this gathering will help delegates to establish research or business relations as well as to find international linkages for future collaborations in their career path.
