GENETIC PARAMETERS AND RELATIONSHIPS OF FAECAL WORM EGG COUNT WITH OBJECTIVELY MEASURED WOOL TRAITS IN THE TYGERHOEK MERINO FLOCK

Abstract The costs of internal parasite control and treatment are potentially very high in grazing sheep. Faecal worm egg count (FEC) has been suggested as a suitable criterion for selection for resistance to nematode infestation in livestock. Genetic parameter estimates for FEC and its relationship with wool traits were assessed in the current study, using data from Merino sheep from a selection experiment maintained at Tygerhoek Research Farm.

NUL EXPLORES THE USE OF LECHUCHUTHA (TAGETES MINUTA) IN DETERGENTS

Sure you get almost irritated at the mention of Tagetes minuta (lechuchutha), that invasive annoying plant! It turns out the National University of Lesotho (NUL) is finding its use in detergents—to make a rival of pine gel! Listen to the story of Thabiso Letseka and his work on Tagetes minuta guided by Dr Mosotho George.

WASTE-BASED COMPOSITES-POVERTY RODUCING STRATEGIES TO ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS

This paper highlights an innovative model of waste management combined with poverty reduction, which has been developed by the organisation Waste for Life (wasteforlife.org) – a network of academics, students, practitioners and on the ground cooperative partners in low income communities. The Waste for Life teams work with local cooperatives to create waste-based composites, which may be sold in local markets, thereby creating an income stream.

GROUP CLASSIFICATION, SYMMETRY REDUCTIONS AND EXACT SOLUTIONS OF A GENERALISED KORTEWEG-DE VRIES-BURGER EQUATION

Lie group classification is performed on the generalized Korteweg-de Vries-Burgers equation ut +δuxxx +g(u)ux −νuxx +γu = f(x), which occurs in many applications of physical phenomena. We show that the equation admits a four-dimensional equivalenceLie algebra

LAUNCHING NUL’S ROBOTIC EGG INCUBATOR, AN ENGINEERING FEAT!

Ladies and gentlemen, we can now declare: “NUL’s Robotic Egg Incubator, Pius the XII, is ready to hit the markets!” That is thanks to Electronic Engineers at the National University of Lesotho (NUL); Seforo Mohlalisi and Thabo Koetje!

In a nutshell, it controls temperature to the finest digits, it confines humidity to any required range, it turns the eggs by itself, it continually pumps water needed in the system during operations, it rings the alarm to warn you of dangerous conditions and, as a bonus, it keeps you on the loop about what’s going on; 24/7.

Abstract

NUL SENATE APPROVES ESTABLISHMENT OF NUL INNOVATION HUB

It is an institution that will transform Lesotho at the core. And it is called the National University of Lesotho (NUL) Innovation Hub.

No doubt the college has seen ballooning levels of innovation under the current leadership of Professor Nqosa Mahao, the NUL Vice Chancellor!

“The NUL Innovation Hub will be a vehicle through which we will transform ideas into realities,” said Professor ‘Mathoto Lephoto, the NUL Pro-Vice Chancellor, as the concept was being introduced to the NUL senate.
