Stock farming comprises large stock farming (slaughter stock, dairy cattle and horses), small stock farming (sheep and goats) and poultry farming (chickens).

Activity 1

To make a list of as many examples as possible of foodstuffs obtained from animals. you could also make a large poster with examples of the packaging in which these products appear on the shelves of shops. [lo 1.7]

Make a list of as many examples as possible of foodstuffs that we get from animals. You could also make a large poster with examples of the packaging in which these products are sold in shops.

Assessment

Learning outcome 1: geographical enquiry

The learner will be able to use enquiry skills to investigate geographical and

environmental concepts and processes.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

1.1 identifies information from various sources (maps, atlases, books) [finds sources];

1.7 uses geographical and environmental concepts and terms to report on enquiries in different ways (e.g. writing a paragraph, using a poster, artwork).

Memorandum

The distribution of large and small stock farming in south africa

  • No
  • North Cape and Free State – natural grazing
  • Cattle
  • Small – industrial; many cities; little rural areas available

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
