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!

Bonsmara working its magic into Gobabis
Date:
August 2016

Yesterday saw a new tradition and history unfold, when breeders held an exclusive Bonsmara auction at Gobabis. The 3 founder breeders (Joggie from Hartebeestloop, Streicher and Hella Coetzee from Hochfeldstreek Bonsmaras and Edward Hansen from EMOK Bonsmaras), as well as guest Bonsmara breeders (Tokat, Okamaja & Moslabon Bonsmaras) and the organizers, left no stone unturned to make sure that this auction is on par with all the other prestigious Bonsmara auctions in Namibia. A Farmers' Day was also held the day prior and top class speakers addressed current issues in Farming. It is always a good time for local farmers to mingle with other farmers and friends! Agra was as usual right there to make sure this auction is top class.

Middle August should become a time that Gobabis Farmers should mark in future! Don’t miss these opportunities to learn, refresh and become enthusiastic about farming again.


Farmers' Day: Fouchè Brand (Capricorn Asset Management) spoke about the impact the economy has on the Namibian Farmer. To his right is Phillip Oosthuizen who spoke about the precision that goes into rounding off feedlot cattle - a concept with merit. Joggie (to the right) spoke about weaner weight and how it influences your returns.

HT 13-0066, the Poena Bonsmara bull from Hartebeestloop Bonsmaras, that fetched the highest price on the auction (N$ 46 000). The bull was bought by Christo Burger from Mytilus Farming.
