    Stockfarm July 2024

    Investigating and improving the quality of Brahman meat is a priority for the Brahman Cattle Breeders’ Society, as the market continues to shift its focus towards a better-quality product for the consumer. The first animals were tested as part of the first cycle of the Beef Genomics Project, and following that first introduction to meat quality traits, the society initiated its own project to test meat quality. The July issue of Stockfarm sets out the requirements considered when meat is tested, the role of sound datasets, the latest on meat quality tests, and industry feedback. The magazine is also chock full of useful articles on, among others, best practices for the shearing season, beneficial Karoo shrubs, heterosis as breeding tool, and special articles on the Brahman. Also look forward to the following articles: • Jan van Zyl: Brahman production requires passion and vision. • Workshop for unity against antimicrobial resistance. • Tall fescue vs perennial ryegrass for dairy cows. • Sky-Hi Manso’s Brahmans: A level-headed approach to meat production. • The undisputed nutritional value of soya oilcake. • Tips for adapting sheep to soya crop residues. • Limiting silage losses. • Genetic improvement of cattle in KwaZulu-Natal. • Using the Brahman in the youth showring. • Preventing conical fluke in the colder months. • Rotavirus: The cause of severe diarrhoea in calves. • Livestock ownership: The rights of farm dwellers.
