We couldn’t miss the opportunity to engage with farmers from Southern Botswana during the Ngwaketse West Small Stock Association Field Day on the 16th and 17th November 2018. The association is made up of young farmers based in the Southern District based around the villages of Samane, Maokane, Thankane, Mokhomma and Tsonyane. It was a well attended workshop with interesting presentations from various government and private organisations, including CCB, with the goal of sharing knowledge and information on livestock husbandry and carnivore management and control. The workshop was attended by about 40 participants. The Department of Agricultural Research from Gaborone demonstrated how to make urea molasses feeding blocks from scratch. These blocks they say, come in very handy especially in these trying time where climate change challenges are looming over us and they are a great way to supplement livestock feed. We are very thankful to the association for the opportunity to spend the day with them and we hope to continue working together going forward.
