The latest News:
REAP THE BENEFIT!
Date:
October 2017


Joggie has reaped big time this time and everybody here at home (and elsewhere) are immensely proud of him.
He has been appointed the winner of the SOUTHERN AFRICAN STUD BREEDER 2017 for Landbouweekblad/Breedplan at the awards ceremony of Aldam Stockman School DD 19 October. His big smile says it all 😊

But for those knowing Joggie, he has reaped the benefits for what he has not “worked” for, because if you do what you ENJOY doing, you have not worked a single day of your life. LOL!

On a more serious note, this is a biggie for us at Hartebeestloop and we cherish this award!

The home base at Hartebeestloop Bonsmaras knows exactly what it takes to win something like this – hours on hours of dedicated hard work and effort over many years.

Congratulations Joggie, you do us proud!

News Article selected in the Archive of 2012:
Where in the world is AG 98 - 338?
Date:
April 2012
AG 98 - 338 is at Hartebeestloop in the Kalahari since 2007.

He is the bull that has most probably played the biggest role in Bonsmara breeding, with the most progeny that is used as stud bulls and cows in different herds.

DOES HE STILL WORK?

Indeed! We still use him in the herd but on a lesser number of cows. In fact, he is doing so well that we are considering giving him more cows!

The average ICP of his cows over the last 2 years are 376 days! His teeth are still functional, condition is good, constitution is excellent and there is nothing wrong with his libido. His front claws are not so good anymore - but this is very typical for 14-year old animals in the Kalahari dunes.

PROGENY

It was quite an experience to see the outstanding progeny of AG 98-338 at the 20th Arcadia Production Auction.

There are more progeny of this outstanding bull on the Hartebeestloop Production Auction on the 24th of May 2012.

"He may be OLD news, but he is still GOOD news!"

COME AND SEE FOR YOURSELF!

There are a number of new breeders that have bought into AG 98-338 genetics but have never seen the bull! At Hartebeestloop Bonsmaras we have decided to show you how he looks at 14 years of age.

We will also exhibit the bull at the Hartebeestloop Auction on the 24th of May 2012.
