Layout of the farm
The subject property has 6 camps with no natural drinking places, but plastic troughs are supplied in each camp.
These camps are effectively planned to adapt to the Field Management Programme, which is practiced on the subject property for livestock. Rest camps are incorporated into the Field Management Programme with success.
Field Management Practices include the treating, which is applied within the management of the field and includes cattle loads, animal ratios, pasture rotation, and pasture rest and veldt fires. Field Management Systems are the formulated programmes whereby Field Management Practices apply and refer to the quantity of camps per group of animals.
Field Management Interpretations refer to the arrangement of camps within a management system. These practices
are applied here. Pasture rotation is the consecutive grazing of different areas by a group of animals during the year, which prevents a whole field from being De-pastured at once. The basic aim is the improvement and/or maintenance of the field condition. Normally this type of field management is found only in cattle production systems because it is difficult to use it in game situations.
There are two forms of pasture rotation namely: high production grazing - that is the occupation of a camp by grazers until all the acceptable and desired species are utilized which will ensure rapid re-growth and high feed production; and high utilization grazing - that is the occupation of a camp by grazers until all the grass species are heavily grazed.
The property is virtually flat with no significant slopes in any directions.
No soil tests was conducted, therefore no comments regarding the type of soil could be made, but it is suitable for
irrigation purposes. The soil is mainly a loam / clay texture type. Limited erosion noticed, drainage is fairly good.
