In 2010, CCB started a Demonstration Farm in Ghanzi with 16 goats and 2 livestock guarding dogs. Its purpose was to be a teaching tool and a venue to teach small-scale local farmers about improved livestock husbandry methods and predation mitigation techniques. Our total loss to predators has been just four goats since 2011 and in an area which hosts cheetah, wild dogs, leopards,brown hyenas, jackals and caracals that considerably lower than the norm. One of the husbandry practices we promote is a single, controlled annual breeding season so that all the young ones are born at the same time and are therefore easier to kraal and protect at the time of their lives when they are most vulnerable. We are just entering this year’s birth season and on the 17th December 2014 at night, the first kidlet was born. Now the herd numbers stands at 64 and we are expecting a lot more kidlets in the next few weeks. Our attentive herders and trusty livestock guarding dogs will be watching over them with care over the coming months.
