    Stockfarm December 2023

    The Agricultural Research Council (ARC) once again presented its National Beef Performers Awards this year. This is the 45th instalment of the awards, which showcases the best of the best in seven categories, all relating to beef cattle performance and beef cattle producers. The December issue of Stockfarm digs into each category’s criteria, finalists and winners. This issue also gives some feedback on the successful Livestock Registering Federation (LRF) Stockman School that took place in the Free State. Also look forward to an in-depth article on how to use the auction catalogue as guideline for selection. We look at ostrich nutrition and management, and announce the finalists in the tenth Santam Agriculture National Silage Competition. The role of bacterial inoculants in high-quality silage, as well as practical tips for a sustainable dairy herd provide some excellent technical insight into farming practices. Our animal health sections looks into various issues, including fly control, foot-and-mouth disease, the principles of a vaccination programme for cattle, and managing screwworm.
