Jy word hartlik uitgenooi na Prof Johan Willemse se Landboumarkvooruitsigte.
Farmers a fantastic indigenous pasture grass mix is now available. Plant NOW anywhere in South Africa.
The grass is suitable for all farm animals and is even more nutritious than Lucerne. Plant it once and it seeds itself every year therefore you can increase your pasture area for free by collecting the seeds and sowing elsewhere. Also grows in the shade. (Orchards). You have to replace Lucerne and Russian grass ever 4 years or so ours grows forever. Adapts well to most soil conditions.
Deep rooted, robust and productive.
Tolerates water logging, salinity, grass grub, heat and drought
Best palatability and texture – between 10-20cm
Allow to grow back to 20cm after grazing down to 10cm
(No bloat or Laminitis) The grass is also suitable for hay. Use conventional cutting and baling methods. Email me on or type your email address in the “Reply” box below. I will send you more pictures, pricing and planting instructions.

SAFA het verneem dat ongeveer 79 kalwers van Charbella Charolais teruggevind is. Ons is dankbaar saam met Charbella Charolais en Lourens de Jager dat so groot hoeveelheid kalwers teruggevind kon word. Die samewerking vanaf Karan Beef voerkraal was besonders. Hierdie situasies gaan hulle self al hoe meer voordoen, en ons as industrie kan nie toekyk hoe ons bedryf vernietig word nie. Naspeurbaarheid is ononderhandelbaar. SAFA has learned that about 79 calves from Charbella Charolais have been recovered. We are grateful together with Charbella Charolais and Lourens de Jager that so many calves could be recovered. The collaboration from Karan Beef feedlot was exceptional. These situations are going to occur more and more, we as an industry cannot watch our industry being destroyed. Traceability is non-negotiable.
