MEN AT WORK!
Who could it be now?
Date:
October 2017


And “Who could it be now”? None other than a beautiful broad Bonsmara bull, that made the selection to be used in the stud. Is the tune from the band "Men at work" also in your head now? :)

This "working man" has 45 super-low-maintenance cows now, in a 400 hectare camp in the Namibian Kalahari. All of them bred from grain-free, grass developed cows and bulls – and we continue with the winning recipe! In April 2018 - with hopefully more rain - he will get 55+ cows.

Just shows you, grass developed bulls can also be broad, thick-set and easy fleshing
– and the best part is that they maintain condition, even in the Kalahari.

What do we expect from HIM?

  • a 100 calves per year over 2 breeding seasons!


  • What do we expect from his bull calves?

  • EXACTLY THE SAME!

    BRIEF BACKGROUND

    Four Bonsmara Breeders donated a stud Bonsmara Bull to the Okakarara Trade Fair Society for use by the Trade Fair Society in its fundraising initiatives in order to host the 7th edition of the Okakarara Trade Fair in September 2013.

    The Bonsmara Bull, HART 10-0004, is sponsored by the following Bonsmara breeders:

    SMS COMPETITION to win THIS BULL!
    The Okakarara Trade Fair Society has decided to use the donated bull in an SMS competition through which, it believes, it will derive maximum marketing for the 2013 trade fair while at the same time raise funds for the event.

    The SMS competition commenced on 29th July 2013 and will culminate in the draw to be conducted during the 7Th Okakarara Trade Fair on 3-8 September 2013.

    Every Namibian stands the chance to win this high quality Bonsmara Bull by sending an SMS with the words “OTFS BONSMARA BULL” to 64444
    . The cost of the SMS is only N$ 5-00 per SMS.

    THE BULL

    The bull, HART 10-0004, is bred by Hartebeestloop Bonsmaras and Joggie Briedenhann said the following of the bull:

    HART 10-0004 is a very good bull that will leave his mark on any herd. He can be used with confidence on heifers and cows and makes bull management very easy. His meat traits are first rate and if you want to improve length, condition on the veld and capacity in your herd – don’t miss this opportunity”.

    This Bonsmara stud bull, like all approved Bonsmara bulls, is performance tested, inspected and approved by inspectors according to minimum breed standards. The bull has further been tested for fertility and sheath washed for Trichomonas and vibrio.

    CONCLUSION

    Junius Mungunda, also a Bonsmara breeder, said the following on behalf of the sponsors:

    “We know that 2013 is a very difficult year for the country and the farming community in particular. Our sponsorship of this top quality bull to the Okakarara Trade Fair Society is a demonstration of our small token of appreciation and our small way of ploughing back in the community. At the same, this offers an opportunity to individuals to obtain a top quality bull at a fraction of the cost. This should offer some measure of relief to the lucky winner – Don’t miss this opportunity”.
