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!

News Article selected in the Archive of 2017:
“SOLAR BULLS”
Date:
February 2017

...with credit to Prof Frikkie Neser who first coined the phrase.



Our main breeding goal – our bulls should efficiently convert LOW quality hay into lots of HIGH quality meat!

After that, we breed for the “nice extras” like

  • good muscling, great body length, good width, full hindquarters, good depth through the forequarter
  • and “I am YOUR Bull!” appearance.


  • Optimizing BLUP breeding values to match our farming environment is an ongoing process.

    These bulls will all be on auction at Hartebeestloop farm on Friday the 18th of May 2017.
