G8 Veiling 2018

Dis weer G8 veiling tyd!

Op 30 Augustus bied ons weer top Bonsmara bulle aan by die Windhoek Agra ring, om 11h30. Volg gerus die skakel om al die bulle en beskrywings te besigtig.

Die Bonsmara is bekend as maklike boerbees.

Een van die ras se baie goeie eienskappe is dat meeste bulle op verse en koeie gebruik kan word – in boeretaal staan dit bekend as “All Rounder” bulle. Hierdie is tipiese kalfgemak bulle met ook goeie bouvorm wat swaar speenkalwers en goeie osse sal produseer.

Dit is diè tipe bulle waaruit boere vervangingsverse moet teel – veral as die bulle positief is op melkwaardes. Die verse is gewoonlik “easy fleshing”, sit gou vet aan, kom vinnig in kondisie om bul te vat en het genoeg melk om ‘n goeie kalf te speen.

Dit was dan ook die kriteria wat gebruik is om die G8 veilingsbulle uit te kies. 4 Uit die 5 Hartebeestloop bulle is “All Rounders” en al 5 bulle is positief op melkwaarde.

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.
