Not only does climate change affect people and crop production but it also has a big impact on livestock. This episode looks at strategies to safely manage livestock given our changing climate.

We learned that observing temperatures, proper housing, location of food sources, monitoring of potential risk for diseases and resilience after weather related shocks all contribute toward ensuring minimum stress to livestock of all types. This then results in better product (dairy and meat) in the long run.

Thanks for your support thus far and we will keep these episodes coming!

In order to improve our quality and ensure consistency of episodes we need support! If you are aware of any organisations that will sponsor our endeavour, please do let us know.

      Dear Leslie-Ann

      Thanks for watching and for your comment. There are many other crops that can be grown using a hydroponic system such as patchoi, watercress, many herbs like Chadon beni and other leafy vegetables. I even saw someone experimenting with a paw paw tree once. It was young and he meant to transfer it out of the system as it was getting too big and needed better support. They key is to search online to learn more. Hope this helps.

      Best
