On the 25th May 2018, 10 members of the Ghanzi Farmers Network (GFN) in partnership with Cheetah Conservation Botswana went on an exchange visit to their counterparts from the Southern Livestock Farmers network (SOLIFANE) members in Jwaneng. The main purpose of the visit was to give the GFN members an opportunity to meet up with SOLIAFNE members to exchange and share ideas on livestock farming experiences. While there, members from both networks had the opportunity to attend the Southern District Beef Farmers Association field day at Moleleme cattle post under the theme, “Increasing profitability for communal farmers”. The event was graced by the Minister of Agriculture Production and Food Security, Honorable Patrick Ralotsia, other stakeholders and farmers from the region. The day was filled with various activities for farmers to enjoy, among them information dissemination on farming issues, visits to cattle and goat kraals and chances to meet and engage farming giants in the Southern region. In the end, the trip was a success; all objectives of information and experience sharing were met. All members gained invaluable information on how to improve their farm performances in order to achieve desirable farming results.
