    Veeplaas Junie 2022

    Die Junie 2022-uitgawe van Veeplaas is 'n vee-fees met artikels wat grotendeels fokus op die bestuur van die koue maande. In ons hoofartikel skyn dr Errol Cason van die Universiteit van die Vrystaat die soeklig op rol van genetika en prestasiesyfers in kommersiële veeproduksie. Kenners gesels ook oor die bestuur van oesreste, droogte, kalwingsintervalle, en rambestuur. Die bestuur van verskeie siektes kry ook aandag, met brandsiekte, tulpvergiftiging en Mannheimia wat veral aandag kry. Die uitgawe fokus ook op die indrukwekkende Boran-beesras met sy gehardheid en aanpasbaarheid. Lees ook oor onlangse landbouskoue en 'n insiggewende boeredag van BKB se House of Fibre.
