Ek wens, ek wens

Hier maak ons kennis met die makabere wêreld van Seb die lykbesorger wat sy werk met lyke gelate aanvaar – om hulle te versorg, bloed en ander liggaamsvloeistof uit te tap, verminktes te herbou, te was en vas te werk, en dan die bleek gesigte te grimeer en mooi te maak vir die familie.

Anton Goosen Liedjieboer

In hierdie werk vertel die bekroonde joernalis, Hanlie Retief die lewensverhaal van die legendariese man wat liedjies skryf en sing – ons nimlike Liedjieboer, Anton Goosen. Ons gaan saam op die reis deur sy grootwordjare in die Vrystaat tot waar hy vandag terugkyk op sy kleurryke lewe.

Kleinood – the farm that inspired it all

In the year 2000 the small farm, that was to become Kleinood, was very different from what it is now. Although its inherent natural beauty and charm was always there, it was, sadly, just a run down and neglected little fruit farm in a beautiful valley against a backdrop of majestic mountains and a river running through it. But it stole our hearts and we decided to give it our best.

A photographic guide to tracks and tracking in Southern Africa

Al die soorte landdiere is in hierdie werk deur Louis Liebenberg verteenwoordig – amfibieë, reptiele, voëls en soogdiere, asook ʼn afdeling toegewy aan insekte. Die teks word toegelig met foto’s en diagnostiese tekeninge van die diere se spoor. In sommige gevalle is daar ook foto’s van die diere se mis en ander leidrade wat sal help dat mens die diere maklik kan identifiseer tydens ʼn uitstappie in die veld.

Sustainable land use – grazing management strategies

The grazing management strategies followed on livestock or game farms are the main aspect determining long-term sustainability (financial and environmental) of the farming business. Poor grazing management results in a reduction in grazing capacity of the veld, which then necessitates the reduction of animal numbers and/or the provision of supplement feeding at a cost. Continuous poor grazing management may even lead to a permanent reduction in grazing capacity if topsoil and nutrients are lost through erosion.
