The closing date for the SA Dairy Championships is nearing, so producers are reminded to get their entries in. Another great opportunity today is the Agrarian Conversations webinar and the Suidplaas Dohne sheep auction in the Western Cape. 


Agrarian Conversations webinar

Farmers make a living from livestock on extensive dry land, and have much to teach us all. Given increasingly common agrarian struggles, the first edition of Agrarian Conversations will explore the opportunities to learn from sheep and cattle farmers. It also looks at the importance of seeking greater engagement across agrarian movements.

The Agrarian Conversations series aims to address strategic and urgent issues in and in relation to the rural world today. Tune in at 14:00 today.

Register for the webinar here.
