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!
