Stacking in regenerative agriculture In stacking in regenerative agriculture, we concentrate on making the soil more resilient to drought, improve water penetration and retention. We aim to build up soil carbon and the soil organic matter to the benefit of the microbial health in the soil and the health of the plants, animals and humans. We produce nutrient dense food, because we have taken care of the soil. Stacking in regenerative agriculture and stacking of

Regardless of our accomplishments, we owe our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil, water, and the fact that it rains. We cannot survive without it. In Southern Africa we realise this on a daily basis. We have prolonged droughts and unusual weather patterns. Our seasons are ever changing. Healthy robust topsoil can retain more water than degraded “moeg geploegde” soil, water penetration and water retention leave a lot to be desired. How often do
The Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare
The Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare It is a well-known fact that production animals produce better in a stress-free environment. This is true for all living organisms in every production system. Animals and humans get diseased as soon as there are any signs of stress. Consequently, production drops. Here we discuss the five freedoms of animal welfare. The question is: “How can we produce animal protein that is crucial for the wellbeing of humans? Without

Farm with Mother Nature. By: Gerry Weber “The right to search for the truth implies also a duty; one must not conceal any part of what one has recognised to be true” – Albert Einstein How can we as humans get it so wrong, so often? And when people warn us about the consequences of our actions – we still want to defend our right to make money and to further destroy and harm the
Fertility in Ultra High Density Grazing
The Importance of Fertility in Ultra High Density Grazing More and more farmers are seeing the benefit of using Ultra High-Density Grazing (UHDG) to rejuvenate their veld and to increase their stocking rate at the same time. There is no doubt that when applying this management system, the veld is rejuvenated.  The diversity in all aspects increases, from grasses, legumes, forbes, insect life and bird life. We focus on the importance of fertility in Ultra

Will our world ever be the same again after COVID-19? What next? After all is said and done will the realisation of what we have done – our destruction of the environment and where we have gone wrong – be enough to motivate us to actually change our actions, our relationships, and ourselves?
