Don't miss episode seven this Thursday at 19:00 on Mzansi Wethu.
African Farming host Tony Ndoro discusses how accountability factors into each element of a farming operation with Praveen Dwarika, MD of AFGRI's Lemang Agricultural Services, Ratselane Marumo, Afrivet Business Management, Sales and Marketing Manager for export, Johann Vosser, MD of Vleissentraal Bosveld and Hendrik Mokoto, Pannar Seed Sales Representative.
New discoveries and advances in technology make agriculture a science on the move. Farmers who stay stuck in obsolete methods do so at their peril and many of them struggle to move forward. The agricultural extension services of the past are largely non-existent, leaving many farmers without advisors to guide their progress.
“Accountability factors into each element of a farming operation,” says African Farming presenter Tony Ndoro. The buying and selling of animals is the lifeblood of a commercial livestock operation, and at the heart of this is the saleyard.
