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!

    Hartebeestloop & EMOK Bonsmaras bied elk ‘n Inligtingsdag aan vroeg in 2014. Die datums is op 10 en 17 Februarie onderskeidelik.

    Bonsmara telers besef die waarde wat toegevoeg word tot die beesvleisindustrie, deur persone wat direk met die boer en beeste werk. Dit is belangrik dat sulke persone toegerus word met die nodige kennis oor die ras en ook weet watter groot rol die Bonsmara speel in die Namibiese beesbedryf. Bonsmara telers wil ook graag die ras verder verbeter en is afhanklik van julle terugvoer en voorstelle om dit reg te kry! Ons het dit goed gedink om 2 Bonsmara inligtingsdae aan te bied - een op Hartebeestloop en die ander op Maitland (EMOK).

    Daar is ‘n propvol program op beide Hartebeestloop en EMOK Bonsmaras Inligtingsdae wat deur verskeie kenners in die bedryf aangebied word. Doen moeite en woon die dae by, kuier lekker, eet lekker en leer meer oor die Bonsmara en beeste in die algemeen. Alles is gratis – laat weet asseblief net in tyd as jy dit gaan meemaak, sodat ons kan weet vir hoeveel mense gereed gemaak moet word.

    Onthou, almal is welkom!

    Hier volg die Program vir beide dae

    • 10 Februarie op HARTEBEESTLOOP
    • 17 Februarie op Maitland (EMOK)

    BONSMARA INFORMATION DAYS - 10 & 17 FEBRUARY 2014

    Hartebeestlooop and EMOK Bonsmaras both host an information seminar early in 2014. The dates are the 10th and 17th February respectively.

    Bonsmara breeders are well aware of the importance to the beef industry that is provided from people that work directly with the cattle and the breeder. As a result it is crucial that these people are up to date with the Bonsmara breed and understand the role that Bonsmaras play in Namibia’s beef industry. Also, the Bonsmara breeders are continually focusing their efforts on improving the breed and thus have a keen ear for any feedback and suggestions that others can offer. To conclude, we believe the two information days offered, on Hartebeestloop and EMOK Bonsmaras, will provide a platform for this interaction to take place.

    An abundance of programs will be hosted at these two information days and we strongly recommend that you try and attend one of these 2 days. These programs will be offered at no cost and guests will be properly entertained. We would like to ask all our guests to please let us know if they would like to attend as we would like to make the necessary catering provisions.

    Everybody is welcome!

    program for both days
