Grass Project Drop Off Zones

Drought in SA Expresso

Grass Project Drop Off Zones

 

Agri SA is calling on South Africans to donate fresh grass cuttings for hundreds of farm animals that are in desperate need of animal feed.

Persistent dry and hot weather, together with a lack of water, have left many drought-stricken areas around South Africa in critical condition.

Hope Grass Project is a community based initiative which has responded to the crisis by collecting grass trimmings from homes and companies around the country. These trimmings are then processed into animal feed pellets and distributed to afflicted  farms and districts, helping to keep their livestock alive.

Here are a few tip for handling grass before your drop off:

  •  Attempt to dry the grass as far as possible by spreading it out in the sun or making thin layers

  •  Once the grass is dry or partially dry, place your grass in a bag or a plastic bag and drop it off the same day it is bagged – especially if it is not thoroughly dried

  •  Ensure that domestic pet faeces are removed from the area before cutting the grass, as pet faeces contaminates animal feed and increases the risk of parasite transmission

  •  Do cut little holes into your bag to constantly aerate the grass

  •  Do try and drop your grass off no more than 48 hours after it has been cut

  •  Do not immediately put the cut grass in plastic bags unless it will be dropped off the same day

  •  Do not leave closed plastic bags with freshly cut grass in the sun or heat as this may lead to fermentation

  •  Do not let big piles of grass heat up as this promotes fermentation and bacterial activity.
