We take delight in boasting about the female animals on offer this year at the auction! This year's auction will be known for the absolutely excellent quality of the female animals for sale.

What is so special about these animals?

  • Hartebeestloop Bonsmaras offers the 10 best 1st calf cows in the herd. These 10 cows represent excellent genetics and of our finest breeding material.
  • Our guest sellers for 2013 - Edward Hansen (Emok Bonsmaras), Streicher & Hella Coetzee (Hochfeldstreek Bonsmaras), Ben & Corlia Mouton (Wagner Bonsmaras), Tollie van Tonder (Komaweer Bonsmaras) and Johannes Smit (Swartrant Bonsmaras), will offer their 6 best pregnant heifers or 1st calf cows. These animals represent the best breeding material in these various herds.
  • Namibian breeders can obtain top quality breeding animals at the auction. South African breeders should use this opportunity to purchase top quality unrelated genetic material. Read how easy it is to export animals to South Africa.

Who decides which animals are best for the Auction?

Kiep Lepen or Japie Besterbreurtjie (both stud livestock advisors) will choose the best female animals. They are experts in their field.

What can potential buyers look forward to?

There will be between 40 and 50 of the best Bonsmara female animals that were born in 2010. This is a unique opportunity to come and look at some of the best Bonsmara genetics in Namibia. There is a wide spread of genetic variation, progeny of outstanding bulls, Bonsmaras from different regions of Namibia and quality female cows from which to choose from. No doubt, here you are looking at the crème de la crème of the auction!

The rest of the stud female animals on offer for the 2013 Auction:

Abovementioned are not the only stud female animals on offer at the auction. Altogether we will sell about 130 stud female animals. The additional 80 will come from Hartebeestloop, Emok, Wagner, Hochfeldstreek, Komaweer en Swartrant Bonsmara herds. These are all outstanding herds and the quality of their animals are of the best. The integrity of these breeders are above board and have always contributed to the success of the Hartebeestloop Auction. These 130 stud animals on offer will no doubt be the highlight of the auction!

Commercial Bonsmara female animals for the 2013 Auction:

There will also be about 80 commercial female animals on sale at the auction. The Hartebeestloop Bonsmara Auction will be hosted under the protection of the Bonsmara Cattle Breeders Association of Namibia. There will be no difference in the minimum requirements between the commercial and stud animals to be offered at the auction. See the Afrikaans article on why auction criteria are necessary.

Which requirements should the stud and commercial female animals meet?

We guarantee your total peace of mind - these are no empty promises!

  • Open heifers will be allowed at 24 months and younger. These heifers should have been evaluated by a veterinarian for acceptable pelvic opening, normal and healthy ovary ducts without any signs of pathology and must be identified as potentially ready for the bull.
  • Heifers older than 24 months have to be certified pregnant by the vet.
  • All other female animals must either be certified pregnant or have a calf at foot.
  • Only animals born in 2006 and later will be auctioned.
  • All female animals (stud and commercial) will be evaluated by a senior Bonsmara selector for functional efficiency, structural correctness and reproduction data, a day before the auction.

Health status of female animals

This time you need not despair and hope for the best - we give you our guarantee that all animals will be healthy and ready for use!

  • Vaccinations of the animals must be done before or on 30 April 2013 and vaccination against rift valley fever is compulsory. All other standard vaccinations against 3-day stiffness disease, lumpy skin disease and the management of internal and external parasites, will be done and be on record for all female animals.
  • The abovementioned herds have been free of TB and Bovine Viral Diarrhea as well as venereal diseases such as Trichomoniasis and Vibriosis.
  • Anaplasmosis is a problem. Buyers from areas that are known for Anaplasmosis will be identified and their animals will be kept at Hartebeestloop until the vaccination has been done by the local vet. Please take note of this - it will also be mentioned in the auction catalogue.
  • Pregnancy status of female animals - comments like: “Been with bull, but not certified as pregnant”, will not be allowed on the catalogue. No female animal older than 24 months that is not certified as pregnant (with the first calf), may be put on auction. Open heifers younger than 24 months may be put up on auction.

Your peace of mind is our business!

Potential buyers can have total peace of mind when they buy female animals (stud and/or commercial), at Hartebeestloop Auction. Hartebeestloop Bonsmaras and the guest sellers will do everything possible to take the risk out of purchasing female animals.

We may have some of the strictest requirements in the industry for females animals to be put on auction. We certainly take pride in that as well as the fact that prospective buyers will be hard pressed to find such service and guarantees elsewhere!

Best regards
