Importance of roughage during the dry season Providing roughage in a drought situation is a given and extremely necessary for the survival of ruminants. Ruminants have a complex four-stomach digestive system that relies on roughage to maintain proper digestion and overall health. They will always need roughage as part of their daily nutritional source as roughages provide the necessary fiber that promotes rumination and ensures the proper functioning of the microbial populations in the rumen.

Droogtes in Namibië word beskou as die hoof oorsaak van onstabiele diereproduksie en dus moet droogtes as sodanig 'n fundamentele aspek wees wat altyd in ag geneem moet word tydens die beplanning van langtermyn produksie doelwitte en strategieë. Omdat veld weiding in Namibië die goedkoopste bron van voeding vir herkouers is, sal die beskerming en bewaring van hierdie natuurlike hulpbron die middelpunt moet vorm waarom droogte strategieë beplan moet word. Die beplanning van droogtevoeding strategieë moet twee verskillende tipes droogtes in ag neem, nl: die normale en voorspelbare… Read More

Met die winter-dekseisoen wat voorlê staar die produsent ‘n paar uitdagings in die gesig, en die koste knyptang raak al groter. Deur na die navorsing te kyk wat gedoen is in die verlede en die kennis wat beskikbaar is, kan ‘n hele paar aannames suksesvol gemaak word. Een van die aannames is beslis wanneer dit kom by ons beeste se kondisie, loop dit hand aan hand met dragtigheidspersentasies. Table A: Tabel A, verduidelik die invloed van massaverlies op die oestrussiklus van veldbeeste. Sodra ‘n koei ‘n massaverlies van rondom 70 kg het staak haar oestrussiklus en hervat eers weer sodra… Read More
