Publication Date:

The purpose of the Best-Practice Livestock Production Guidelines contained within this document is to summarize our current state of knowledge regarding industry standards and best practice activities within the livestock production industry. The focus of these guidelines relates specifically to activities associated with the ecological and conservation impacts of livestock production in its_ broadest sense. The various activities addressed in the guidelines are considered primarily within a local ecological context and broader impacts such as the release of gasses associated with climate change are not directly considered. Although more broadly applicable, these guidelines were developed with specific reference to the Namakwa District Municipality.
