Last year, 2010, the team determined that the Treasury would be required to use some animals to start the grazing management aimed at the educational preparation of future areas for cattle. For this planned purchase of animals for slaughter that were bid last year yet.
On the last weekend of Farm agronomists, Nuno and Octavo were the Bom Jardim da Serra – SC bid to choose the animals.
The arrival of the animals here at the Experimental Farm was in May 9, 2011, a group at 3 a.m. and another 01 p.m. They arrived with 30 beefs of mixed breeds with European cattle and zebu part age of about 5-8 months old, weighing an average of 156 kg each.
Since the end of the year the Farm team has strived to design, resize and rebuild fences and structures to meet the livestock industry.
Below are pictures of this work (2x click on photos to enlarge them).

II CURSO DE CULTIVO E MANEJO DE BAMBU
Teórico e prático
mais informações abaixo:
Data – 26 de março de 2011 das 9 as 18h
Instrutor: Eng. Florestal Thiago M. Greco
Certificado pela UFSC
DESCONTO PARA ESTUDANTES DA UFSC! (se informe junto ao contato de inscrições)
O bambu tem uma demanda crescente por produtos valorizados e a produção não está dando conta de atender o mercado consumidor: faltam produtores qualificados!
Hoje um hectare de bambu pode resgatar muito carbono com retorno garantido e anual a partir do oitavo ano (o que compensa mais facilmente possíveis dificuldades, diferente de outras espécies madeireiras). A partir de então é possível colher anualmente na mesma área com manejo adequado. Nesta área pode-se colher anualmente algo próximo de quatro carretas com 600 colmos, pagando-se (por baixo hoje) R$7,00 por colmo, se for bem manejado e escolhidas as espécies adequadas.

BAMBOO PLANTATION AND MANAGEMENT COURSE
Theoretical and practical
The Brazilian bamboo market has a growing demand for quality products and production is not keeping up in serving the consumers: there is a lack of qualified producers! Today one hectare of bamboo can yield a lot of carbon with a guaranteed annual return after the eighth year (compensating easily possible difficulties, different from other wood species). Nearly four truckloads, each with 600 culms, can be harvested annually at a price of R$ 7.00 per culm (low estimate), if well managed and selecting the appropriate species.
There are several other possibilities such as the production of edible bamboo shoots and other direct uses: furniture, construction, landscaping, musical instruments, tools, soil remediation, animal feed, associations with other species, among others.
To that purpose Santa Catarina Bamboo Association – BambuSC – www.bambusc.org.br, along with UFSC, through the Ressacada Research Farm, will promote a series of bamboo training courses, starting with the present one (see poster below with details and more information in portuguese), with the aim to create the first Bambusetum of Santa Catarina, and you can be part of this story.
Date: Saturday June 12th , 2010
Address: Ressacada Research Farm – UFSC – Neighbourhood Tapera – Florianópolis/SC – Brazil
Investment: R$ 100.00
Note: 50% discount for UFSC students, staff and professors and members of BambuSC.
PARTICIPATE: LIMITED OPENINGS!
