In this week’s episode of Farmer’s Inside Track…The 101 of rabbit farming! Believe it or not, but exporting rabbit meat could mean big bucks for up-and-coming South African farmers.
Besides the rabbit farming tips, we also meet Lesego Morapeli, a North West rabbit farmer who saw a gap in the market and…well, the rest is history. Lesego is also this week’s Soil Sista, powered by Food For Mzansi and Corteva Agriscience.
We follow developments in Zimbabwe where the authorities suspended all maize and maize meal imports from South Africa with immediate effect. We’re joined by political and policy specialist, Theo Venter.
And we also meet Tamara Happyface Kaunda, a dynamic Zimbo who is on a mission to change the face of agriculture in her home country, as well as the continent.
Our book of the week, as selected by you, our listeners, is The e-myth revisited: Why most small businesses don’t work and what to do about it by Michael E. Gerber.
And Eastern Cape grain farmer Sinelizwi Fakade gives us the 101 aboutbuilding retailer and supplier relationships.
