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!

    News Article selected in the Archive of 2013:
    Farmers’ Catalogue in English
    Here it is!
    Date:
    October 2013

    We have worked hard to put together the Farmers’ Catalogue and it is now fully functional and also available in English! Please check a prototype of the final version of this catalogue in Publication/Farmers’ Catalogue. We also have detailed explanatory notes on all values, also in Publications/Farmers’ Catalogue.

    We have used actual values of 9 Hartebeestloop bulls to check if the table actually WORKS! Finally we also provide a table with descriptions for each of the characteristics (127Kb) that you can download in PDF format (127kb).

    Thank you to all the people that responded to our request for help. A lot of useful information came from the farming communities and most of it was used in putting together the Farmers’ Catalogue.

    Dr Helena Theron from SA Stud Book visited us in Windhoek for 3 days to help with the final compilation of the catalogue. It’s important to us that the scientific information – as provided by SA Stud Book – is reflected correctly in the Farmers’ Catalogue; Helena helped us tremendously with this very important task! The catalogue was presented to a number of key role players in Namibia and in conjunction with them we arrived at the final product.

    This is surely an on-going process!

    The task of compiling the Farmers’ Catalogue is an on-going process and as time passes we expect that it will be refined even more. We believe that this edition of the Farmers’ Catalogue is a good and practical catalogue and we will be using it at future auctions.
