Drought Sprouts

by James Sleigh   (2016-03-24)

Its far more than just a long hot summer that weve been experiencing in the Western Cape this year;  a full on drought has us praying for early winter rains to fill dams that are alarmingly low throughout the country.

Here at Camphill we have been forced to become innovative to feed our organic dairy herd, which is used to grazing on pasture year round.

Weve come up with the solution of supplement feeding our cows with oat sprouts, which we are growing in our old green house, empty now that the brand new tunnels are housing the tomatoes.

The cows certainly seem to be enjoying the healthy boost to their natural diet!
