Dung Beetles:

 

Imagine a farm machine that…

* Aerates the soil

* Breaks up dung pads

* Buries manure in the plant root zone

* Deepens topsoil

* Reduces bush fly and parasite breeding

* Works all year round

* Doesn’t use fossil fuels

 

Who needs them?

* Compacted Soil?

* Fouled Pastures?

* Algal Blooms?

* Plagues of Bushflies?

* Chronic Parasite Problems?

* Low Soil Organic Matter?

 

The Bubas Bison is a Winter / Spring active species and can fill a gap to achieve year round coverage.
