ANY MAN CAN BE A FATHER
Date:
June 2017

Any man can be a father, but it takes someone very special to be a “DAD”! – Happy Fathers Day!

The same can be said of a bull – don’t just use ANY bull. Reap the benefit of 53 years of meticulous Bonsmara performance testing and get that special bull that will breed low cost, high performing animals every time - not just on paper, but also in performance ON THE VELD!

Our bulls are a great testimony to performance testing and veld-adapted animals – they can maintain constitution and condition even on the dry winter Kalahari veld.

Some “auction advice” – You can never do a Bad Deal with a Good Bull!

Gobabis auction DD 10 August and G8 in Windhoek on 31 August – be there!

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.
