Beef farmers’ day in Polokwane is a must

Cattle farming runs in the blood of many South Africans, with an astonishing 40% of cattle managed by black communal farmers. 

These herds present one of the biggest opportunities in the South African economy, especially in the light of growing beef exports, which could double the commercial price of beef. 

It’s with this wonderful opportunity in mind, that African Farming, a proud print, digital and TV brand extension of the agricultural magazine Landbouweekblad, will be hosting a beef farmers’ day on Monday 7 February at the Pietersburg Auction Centre at the Polokwane Show Grounds (R101). The event will start at 08:30.

Speakers include Patrick Sekwatlakwatla, head of transformation at the Sernick Group, Dr Baldwin Nengovhela, scientific manager at the South African Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF), veterinarian Dr Faffa Malan and experts from Vleissentraal and Elanco.

Come and listen to them explain how small changes to your operation – from breeding to selling on auctions – can have a big impact on your bottom line. 

Network with fellow farmers while enjoying a meal, and let’s build more profitable businesses together, be they emergent, or seasoned commercial operations!

Tickets cost only R50 and include lunch and a goody bag and are available at
