Farm videos of the 4 finalists of the MPO Nedbank Stewardship Awards 2019 showcasing sustainable farming practices on dairy farms in South Africa.
The MPO Nedbank Stewardship Award, supported by the World Wide Fund for Nature, recognises dairy farmers who are excellent stewards of their product, the people and animals on the farm, and the environment, whilst farming profitably. The competition was stiff, but Berning walked off with the accolade in the end. The video’s below gave an overview of the highlights and the unique approach at each farm. They shared, with us, their values, as they are living out in terms of being good stewards of their natural, social and financial resources.
Sandra Berning: “ The judges found that Berning’s cow and milking management, in particular, inter-calving period and cow longevity, was top notch. With virtually no calf mortalities, and all the environmental stewardship boxes ticked, she sets a high standard. ”
