Regenerative Farming Practices

Many Industrial agricultural techniques such as deep tilling and an overuse of chemical fertilisers and pesticides, have diminished the soil’s natural ability to capture carbon from the atmosphere. This means that the CO2 that would normally be drawn down into a healthy, carbon-fuelled soil, is now staying in the atmosphere and contributing to the warming planet. At Segla we desire to be part of this change, by practicing sustainable and regenerative farming practices wherever possible.

By using regenerative practices, we aim to improve soil health and function, reboot plant activity and enable nature to rebalance our property. Regenerative techniques include using cover crops and perennials to protect the soil, no tilling, no pesticides nor synthetic fertilisers, and multiple crop rotations which include bringing grazing animals to the land in ways that minimises their footprint.

Regenerative agriculture also offers many benefits beyond carbon storage, in that it also increases the soil’s water holding capacity, reduces soil erosion, protects the purity of groundwater and sets up the grasses to thrive and to become more disease and pest resilient.

This kind of farming methodology we believe improves human health by increasing the nutritional value of our food as well as benefiting the health of our planet.

Breed Characteristics

The Santa Gertrudis breed offers many high quality and consistent traits, including the cow’s carcass structure and quality, maternal characteristics, calving ease, and moderate size. In addition, the Santa Gertrudis offer uniformity, good disposition, and an outstanding appetite.

Why do we prefer Santa Gertrudis at Segla? The red colour brings together three significant advantages for the animal.

  • Red provides a continuity and uniformity of colour that is more heat tolerant than black, thus providing greater comfort to the animal.
  • The dark coloured, well hooded eyes are known to be resistant to cancer and have proven resistant to pink eye problems.
  • Santa Gertrudis adapt easily and quickly to a wide range of climatic conditions.
