Giyani Farmers Day
A farmers day was held at Giyani Department of Agriculture’s depot on Tuesday the 16th of June 2016. The day was attended by approximately 30 poultry farmers from the Giyani region. The day was arranged by Gerrie Van Der Merwe of Giyani Feeds. The focus of the day was cage preparation, the importance of brooding presented by Marcos Grassini of Alfa Chicks and also a presentation regarding feed by Petrus of Feed Master.
The discussion around brooding involved not only the how’s but also the why’s. Overall the day was a great success and a follow up farmers day to discuss biosecurity and vaccination has been tentatively scheduled for the beginning of August.
