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!
