10 puppies were brought in from Botswana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals for training at our demo farm on the 21st November 2016. One was lost due to an unknown cause in December 2016 and by mid February 2017, the remaining nine trained and vaccinated puppies were placed with those farmers in the Ghanzi area that are faced with depredation. The Livestock Guarding Dogs (LSGDs) are reported to be doing very well in bonding with their goat herds and protecting them from carnivores. Monitoring of the LSGDs is ongoing and CCB community team is impressed with the results. As a way of cutting down costs and keeping a manageable number of goats, 13 goats were sold at the beginning of the year. Such sales assist in maintaining the farm like buying vaccinations to ensure healthy herd and LSGD's at all times. Currently, our goats at the farm are at a total of 46 with two LSGDs which stay with the herd and keep them safe from carnivores. The herder checks the herd every hour to ensure that the herd is all together and accompanied by the LSGDs. The demo farm continues to serve as a practical demonstration area for small stock farmers on the use of a range of livestock management techniques to minimise depredation, optimize herd health and maximise production.
