Farming in you father and grandfather’s footsteps is a privilege. They have walked the walk, talked the talk and showed the way to a new generation so that they farm sustainable and be prosperous. In our program of 6 July, Alexander Bisset of Zandor Farming tells us how his father and grandfather started farming with Damara sheep that they imported from Namibia many years ago. He tells a story of how he can remember the sheep being loaded off and that all of these hardy sheep survived.

Billy Marais of Oranje Meatmasters farm with Meatmastersheep just outside Dealesville. He tells us about his management of his farming business, the worth of using the best bloodlines in your flock and how to prepare your animals before taking them to the National Meatmaster Auction in August.

Dirk Hanekom, Merino sheep farmer in the Overberg region talks about the management of lambs and how he uses mobile lamb pens.

Dr Johnny van der Merwe, Director of AMT has the latest news regarding grain and livestock market trends.
