MEN AT WORK!
Who could it be now?
Date:
October 2017


And “Who could it be now”? None other than a beautiful broad Bonsmara bull, that made the selection to be used in the stud. Is the tune from the band "Men at work" also in your head now? :)

This "working man" has 45 super-low-maintenance cows now, in a 400 hectare camp in the Namibian Kalahari. All of them bred from grain-free, grass developed cows and bulls – and we continue with the winning recipe! In April 2018 - with hopefully more rain - he will get 55+ cows.

Just shows you, grass developed bulls can also be broad, thick-set and easy fleshing
– and the best part is that they maintain condition, even in the Kalahari.

What do we expect from HIM?

  • a 100 calves per year over 2 breeding seasons!


  • What do we expect from his bull calves?

  • EXACTLY THE SAME!

    Bulgroeitoetse
    Date:
    October 2014
    Wat is Bulgroeitoetse en waarom doen ons dit?


    This Publication is unfortunately only available in Afrikaans for now.

    Bulgroeitoetse op die plaas is deesdae ’n alombekende begrip onder boere. Tog is daar steeds vrae oor hoekom stoettelers dit doen en of dit lonend is.

    In hierdie artikel van Pieter Visagie - Stoetveebestuurder, Hartebeestloop Bonsmaras - wat in die Agriforum (Augustus 2014) verskyn het, gesels ons oor wat presies ’n bulgroeitoets op ’n plaas behels, wat die voordele daarvan vir die kommersiële boer is en wanneer groei-getoetste bulle gebruik word.

    Volgens SA Stamboek is bulgroeitoetse daar om die genetiese groeipotensiaal en die doeltreffendheid daarvan onder verskillende gekontroleerde voedingtoestande so akkuraat as moontlik te identifiseer. Die verskillende voedingomstandighede sluit in:

    • Intensief – kragvoer (groei-rantsoen) in ’n kraal
    • Semi-intensief – genoegsame kragvoer met baie ruvoer in ’n groter kampie
    • Semi-ekstensief – veld of aangeplante weiding met aanvulling, en
    • Ekstensief – veld met ’n lek.


    MAAR WAT BETEKEN AL HIERDIE NOU IN BOERETAAL?
