Landbou Radio – 20 May 2021

Not everything is predictable, especially in a farming business. It is essential to plan to control costs. In our program of 20 May, Dr Gavin Robinson, Director of SG Engineering Solutions, tells us more about the newly developed Ram Pump, a low-cost energy solution for farms with water and a land layout which could allow for potential energy. The technology is about 200 years old, but they have enhanced it.

Paul Michau, Owner of 4 Daughters Ranching farms with Buffalo. Selection is one of the topics discussed. Buffalo should be selected for good body shape and horn size, the weight of the horn is also important. They have lineage records of every buffalo and can be traced back 3 generation in both male and female animals.
