Gerhard Verdoorn bepleit swaarder strawwe vir plaagdoderoortredings
Die omgewingsbewaarder en plaagdoderkundige Gerhard Verdoorn en bewaringsgroepe is ontevrede dat ’n 34-jarige boer van Molteno in die Oos-Kaap, Armand Aucamp, verlede week ’n boete van R10 000 en ’n jaar opgeskorte tronkstraf opgelê is vir die vergiftiting van 46 bedreigde kransaasvoëls in Desember Verdoorn het landbouminister Senzeni Zokwana gevra vir beter wetgewing en swaarder strawwe vir die onverantwoordelike en onwettige gebruik van plaagdoders. Hy oorweeg ook siviele stappe. Daarmee saam sê Verdoorn daar moet nie langer slegs op die bewaring van renosters gefokus nie, maar op die hele natuur.

Nkwinti se ondersoek na afsettings moet holisties en objektief wees, sê Steytler
Graan SA en Agri SA se Louw Steytler sê grondsakeminister Gugile Nkwinti moet 'n holistiese benadering volg wanneer hy uitsprake en bewerings oor die onwettige afsetting van plaaswerkers in die Vrystaat en ander provinsies ondersoek. Populistiese uitsprake en bewerings dat sommige plaaswerkers bloot onwettig van plase afgesit word, skep probleme. Amptenare wat die bewerings gaan ondersoek, moet hulle deeglik vergewis van die ekonomiese werklikhede en die regering moet besef hy het  'n plig teenoor plaaswerkers, boere en beleggers.

NK-boere gewaarsku teen vals kommandowurm
Goddy Prinsloo, entomoloog aan die LNR-Kleingraaninstituut op Bethlehem, sê die voorkoms van vals kommanomotte in die Noord-Kaap was vanjaar drasties hoër as verlede jaar.
 
Boere - veral garsboere - moet waaksaam wees en betyds optree indien kommanowurms in landerye gekry word. Verlede week is vals kommandowurms in landerye by Bull Hill en Magogong gekry.

Die eerste uitbreking van vals kommandowurms op gars en koring in Suid-Afrika was twee jaar gelede. In die Noord-Kaap is binne drie weke skade van R8,5 miljoen aan 2 000 ha gars aangerig.

Harrismith fire caused injured to be in desperate need
Good Morning,

I hope you are all well.

You must all know by now about the fires that hit Harrismith last week. My husband’s cousin JP du Toit is the young man who got injured in this fire while trying to save his friend Nico who sadly passed away on Saturday.
 
JP is also the one who asked that the Dad and his son who also lived on the lodge “Mount Everest” to come and help who also sadly lost there lives in the fire.
 
JP is a foreman at the Mount Everest Game Lodge and this tragedy occurred while he was on duty.
 


JP is currently in the hospital in Bethlehem. He has 3rd degree burns over his arms, hands, legs, back , neck and face. His medical expenses is sky rocketing, fortunately they have a medical aid. Currently his parents are negotiating with the medical aid as they unfortunately had a bad month financially and regrettably their medical aid debit order was returned. As a family, all residing in the Johannesburg region, we wanted to transfer him to Alberton’s burn unit but due to the one month non-payment of the medical aid we were unable to do so.
 
My Uncle and Aunt (Daan & Amanda du Toit)as well as JP’s wife (Welri du Toit) and there little baby boy Jaunru (8 months old) has to travel to Bethlehem every day to be with JP in hospital. Financially they are no longer able to foot the bill of travelling to Bethlehem.
 
My uncle and aunt stay in Springs in JHB so they both had to take off from work to be with their son, a situation that is not ideal as no employer will be able to cope for a long-term period without employees coming to work.

JP has undergone his first skin transplant on Saturday which went well, he was supposed to have been back in theatre today but due to a problem with his lungs the procedure was postponed to Wednesday 24 September.

I am not too sure as if I should be specific about what we need. At this point in time, we need is a miracle! We are in desperate need of help with JP’s medical expenses and for his wife and parents to have accommodation close to the hospital where they can be with him every day without worrying about how they are going to get there or where they are going to stay. Alternatively, if we could get him transferred closer to home, it would help a great deal. They have enough to worry about as it is and if at least they do not have to worry about things like not being able to afford to be with their son / husband / father every day will help a lot. PLEASE if you can do anything for them to at least help them during this difficult time in their lives it would be so highly appreciated. We pray each day that God heals him completely and we trust and know that He will.

JP is the most wonderful young man you will ever meet, he is a wonderful new daddy and husband, there is not a thing that he would not do for the people he knows and loves. The Du Toit family has always been very very close, if one of us hurt we all hurt and if one of us struggle we all help. It’s just the way it’s always been. So for us to see JP in that situation and not being able to help, is killing us. I cannot even begin to think what his mom and dad is going through and especially his wife Welri, for her to not be able to help her husband is beyond sad. JP is very very hard broken that he cannot hold his baby boy.
 

You can contact JP’s dad = Daan du Toit @ 082 807 2215 or his mother Amanda du Toit @ 083 741 7792

Alternatively you can contact me Nikita du Toit on 082 973 0552 .

Johan Willemse gesels oor grondkwessie
Die landbou-ekonoom Johan Willemse sê die grondhervormingsdebat in Suid-Afrika en praatjies oor die instelling van grondplafonne strook nie met die wêreldtendens van tegnologie en ekonomie van skaal in boerderye nie. Die vraag hoe Suid-Afrika se miljoene stedelinge kos gegee gaan word, word ook onderspeel.

KGI hou Donderdag koringdag
Vrystaatse boere het min koring geplant en die nasionale oes gaan klein wees. Die LNR-Kleingraaninstituut by Bethlehem se Elri Burger sê juis hierom gaan die KGI  Donderdag (18 September) op sy jaarlikse koringdag daarop fokus dat daar steeds 'n plek vir koringboerdery is. Vanjaar se koringdag is ’n interaktiewe dag waarop boere vir ekonome, wetenskaplikes en ander kundiges hul kwelvra kan vra. Boere sal ook ingelig word oor die jongste koringnavorsing en –ontwikkeling. Elri het met Before Dawn oor die koringdagprogram gesels.

Henk Vermeulen kap minister Nkwinti se plan oor grondplafonne
In die kringe van georganiseerde landbou word gesê grondsakeminister Gugile Nkwinti wou die pas afgelope grondberaad in Boksburg gebruik om 'n besluit oor die instelling van grondplafonne af te dwing.
 
Nkwinti het op die grondberaad 'n voorstel ter tafel gelê dat beperkings ingestel moet word op hoeveel grond van kleinboere tot groot kommersiële boere mag besit.
 
Die landbou-eenheidsforum Asuf se voorsitter, Japie Grobler, Agri SA asook Vrystaat Landbou sê daar is reeds in die verlede aan Nkwinti uitgewys dat grondplafonne onprakties en onwerkbaar is. VL se hoofbestuurder, Henk Vermeulen, het met Before Dawn hieroor gesels:

'Boere gáán aan beeld moet werk'
Een van die grootste take wat boere het, is om die verkeerde beeld wat die meerderheid Suid-Afrikaners oor hulle het, te verander, het Theo de Jager, vise-president van Agri SA, vandeesweek op Agri-Noordwes gesê. Hy het gesê elke boer gaan hard moet werk sodat mense kan besef wie en wat die boere is wat met harde werk vir die land kos produseer.
