Turning RED can sometimes be a VERY good sign Right?
Not just another day at Hartebeestloop – here you see Bonsmara heifers and polled crossbreed heifers directly after artificial insemination. When last were we so lucky – all of them came on heat on the same day! Yes, the same day…
And check ALL the stickers turning red when they went on heat! The polled crossbreed heifers were inseminated with semen from a polled Bonsmara bull. One step closer to a complete new Bonsmara polled mother line.
Roll out the red carpet everyone…
