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!

Inspection of bulls at Dassiesfontein
Date:
February 2012
BOERE WEET WATTER DIERE DOEN GOED BY HULLE

Die boere in die suidwestelike gedeelte van Namibië (Maltahöhe, Swartrante en Helmeringhaus en omgewings) het hulle eie opinie oor watter tipe diere goed doen by hulle. Waar meeste van ons ander slegs miskien ‘n reënval hoeveelheid verskil het in ons omgewing, het hierdie manne omgewingsfaktore wat erg is op hulle diere. Hulle wëreld is droog, ongenaakbaar en toets die diere se vermoë om gemaklik te loop, tot die uiterste. As mens hier na die grond kyk, lê die klip in massas bo-op die grond. Orals is klip en daar is letterlik nie 'n kolletjie wat nie klip het nie!

Deur baie gesprekke, groeitoets afsluitings, keuringsdae en persoonlike ondervinding, het ons nou die “inns and outs” waaraan diere moet voldoen om goed te presteer en reproduseer in die suidweste.

BULLS WERE IN GOOD CONDITION

Dassiesfontein, our farm near Mariental where we rear our “stone/rock bulls”, was good to us on the 3rd of February 2012, when we had our inspection of bulls. It can be blistering hot during February, but the day was nice and cool with some cloud cover. There was even some indication of rain on the adjacent farms to the north. The bulls to be inspected were in good condition – thanks to an excellent rainy season during 2011 and some strategic lick supplements. As in the past - legs, walking abilities and claws were the main issues of discussion and opinion.

ONS KYK MOOI VIR SEKELHAKKE IN DIE KLIPWÊRELD

Dit is mos net so dat enige dier wat neig na sekelhakke gaan baie erge sekelhakke ontwikkel in die klip. Die diere loop nie ordentlik nie – hulle “shuffle” en plaas die agterpoot in presies dieselfde plek as waar die voorpoot was. Dit doen hulle instinktief omdat hulle dan weet daar wag nie ‘n skerp klip vir die agterpoot waarop die volle gewig gesit moet word nie.

Dit kan soms die idee van sekelhakke gee aan die persone wat nie die klip omstandighede ken nie. Ons het gesien dat hierdie bulle 100% normaal loop as hulle op normale sagte grond kom.

Kloue is ook van belang aangesien enige swak klou, in vorm of konsistensie, dadelik probleme gee . Die klip is baie hard op enige sagte klou of waar daar tekort aan diepte van hiel is. Mediumraam diere bly koning van die klip! Grootraam en baie swaar diere vind dit net moeiliker om hulle liggaamsgewig in die klip gemaklik rond te beweeg.

MANY OLD FRIENDS WERE THERE!

It was a great pleasure to have Danie de Lange (Voermeester, Mariental), Kiep Lepen and Barend Dorfling (Agra, Stud Animal Services), Japie Bestebreurtjie (independent consultant) and many other Hartebeestloop “old” customers at the event. Hans Deloch (senior inspector) and Edward Hansen (junior inspector) were present on behalf of the Bonsmara Cattle Breeders Society.

HANS DELOCH WAS DIE SENIOR KEURDER

Hans ken beeste en klipperige wêreld – sy opinie is vir ons baie werd. ‘n Groot deel van ons filosofie oor hoe beeste vir die suidweste moet lyk, het ons van hom geleer. Edward was die junior keurder. Hy self teel uitstaande diere – so hy weet presies hoe lyk ‘n goeie funksioneel doeltreffende Bonsmara. Hy is al jare in die bulbedryf en het bulle verkoop regoor Namibië.

ADDISIONELE DOKUMENTASIE

Kyk gerus na die gelyste PDF dokumente ten opsigte van ekstra inligting wat ons verskaf oor die Keuringsbulle, asook die tabel op die end oor die afkeurredes van ons bulle.

Ons is en word elke jaar strenger oor bulmoeders en waaraan hulle moet voldoen. Dit is vir ons belangrik om ook bulle te teel wat goed aanpas in ongenaakbare klip wêrelde.
