Our end however are many farmers’ new start – new start with new bulls or new female animals. Even lots of new knowledge gained at the Farmers’ Day! We wish them the best of luck and hope they will be equally blessed and happy!
Many thanks to all the roll players who made this event so successful. It is not possible to achieve something like this without all of you! Agra has again kicked in big time with their sponsorship in not just organizing the Farmers’ Day and providing us with delicious food, but also to ensure that farmers are exposed to meaningful exhibitors and interesting stalls. To our other sponsors, also thanks a lot! You guys rock!
But without support for both days, in VISITORS and BUYERS, this would all have meant nothing. A big thank you to you all! We sincerely hope to see you there again next year!!
We would like to quote Jim Rohn, “Whatever good things we build end up building us.” So true!
Our reward is indeed in this joyful journey with you all! God bless.
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.
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.
