Prosopis trees and plants such as blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) are the cause of many a problem in numerous livestock production areas, among others reducing the carrying capacity of the land by half. A deforestation project can cost the landowner a lot of money. Dr Niekie van Aswegen of De Aar not only approaches his farming enterprise scientifically, but also employs an economic approach. His problem is Prosopis encroachment, but he uses a mixer and pelleting machine to transform these invasive species into a good basis for his livestock feed. The cost savings and beneficial deforestation gained in the process, more than makes up for the machines he had to buy for this purpose.
