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!

Ons program vir die Agra/Hartebeestloop Boeredag 2015 is gefinaliseer en ons is opgewonde om hierdie nou te kan bekendstel. Die Boeredag vind plaas op 28 Mei op Hartebeestloop en is een dag voor die Veiling van Vrydag 29 Mei.

Hartebeestloop Bonsmaras maak weereens ‘n Groot Geleentheid van die Boeredag! Moeiliker boerdery-jare beteken nie dat minder kundigheid en kennis nodig is nie. Dit is juis dan wanneer die wetenskap, ondervinding, kennis en kundigheid die boer moet ondersteun. Daar is klomp nuwe goed op die tafel – kom leer en geniet en maak die beste van dit wat ons het. Die namiddag is prakties, “hands-on” en propvol bul nuus!

Jy word hartlik uitgenooi!

Beide 'n verkorte program sowel as 'n gedetaileerde program (wat insluit meer inligting oor die sprekers en hulle onderwerpe), is te verkry deur die "READ MORE" skakel hier onder te druk.




Sien ook die program wat meer detail oor die sprekers en hulle onderwerpe gee, meer ondertoe.

The English version
We are very happy to announce that the programme for the Agra/Hartebeestloop Farmers' Day 2015, is now finalized (please scroll up slightly to see the short programme). This takes place on 28 May on Hartebeestloop, one day before the Auction DD 29 May.

Hartebeestloop Bonsmaras is once again making a Big Event of the Farmers’ Day! There is no doubt that we are experiencing tough times, but it does not mean that we need less expertise and knowledge. On the contrary, the time is now for science, expertise, experience and knowledge to support the farmer. There are many new ideas on the table – come and learn, enjoy and let us make the best of our situation. The afternoon session is practical, “hands-on” and full of bull news!

DNA-getoetsde poena Simmentaler, Braunvieh, Tuli en Senepol word gebruik om op te teel na suiwer Bonsmara poena. Daar is goed in elke ras! Dit is ‘n lang proses - uitdagend, lekker en vol verassings.

We use DNS tested polled Simmentaler, Braunvieh, Tuli and Senepol to breed up to pure polled Bonsmara. There is some good in every cattle breed! The process is long – challenging, exciting and full of surprises.
