Fodder Reserves

In order to de-risk the challenges posed by climate change, Sosian are working on their dry season fodder reserves by fencing off a 200 ha. area of land. Here, they will grow Rhodes grass, sorghum, lucerne and other fodder crops suitable for livestock. Their cattle will strip graze the fields, allowing Sosian to have consistently well-finished livestock ready for market, while also ensuring that the productivity of the land, the health of the soil and the quality of pasture is maintained. Surplus will be baled for drought reserves - both for their own cattle as well as for sale to communities in the dry season.
