In Mzansi, duck meat is sold to high-end restaurants, some delis and farmers markets… and if you get it right, it’s a perfect niche market to step into. This week, we share the ultimate duck meat farming guide for beginners.

 Dr Jane Buys, Free State Agriculture’s, safety risk analyst chats to us about the hardship, up-and-coming farmers in Phuthaditjhaba in the Free State face and how they’re being held “hostage” by stock thieves with very little support from the police.

Drumroll, please. We lift the veil on a new campaign with Meadow Feeds, who farmers turn to for much more than just feed! Now, I didn’t know this, but experts say the dry period is the most important phase of a dairy cow’s lactation cycle. Joubert Nolte, national technical manager for ruminants at Meadow Feeds, explains why!

Our book of the week is The sell: The Secrets of Selling Anything to Anyone by Fredrik Eklund. And, our farmer tip of the week comes from Laetitia Piers who owns a natural hair and skincare range.
