The Grootfontein Agricultural Development Institute (GADI) is hosting its third annual Small Stock Scientific Symposium. 

The objective of this one-day event is to provide a platform for people involved in small-stock research in the arid and semi-arid regions of South Africa to present information and to interact with people involved in the small stock industry. 

GADI invites you and your colleagues to attend or make a presentation at this symposium, which will be held on 8 November 2012 at Grootfontein; please see the registration form below. 

For those wishing to present a talk, papers relating to rangeland management, animal production, and the economics of small-stock enterprises are relevant.  A time of 15 minutes will be available to speakers (e.g. a 10 minute talk followed by 5 minutes of questions).

The program will be distributed shortly.  There will be a charge of R80 per person.  We hope that you will be able to attend.

For further enquiries, please contact Justin du Toit at
