glorious beautiful RED

Turning RED can sometimes be a VERY good sign Right?

Not just another day at Hartebeestloop – here you see Bonsmara heifers and polled crossbreed heifers directly after artificial insemination. When last were we so lucky – all of them came on heat on the same day! Yes, the same day…

And check ALL the stickers turning red when they went on heat! The polled crossbreed heifers were inseminated with semen from a polled Bonsmara bull. One step closer to a complete new Bonsmara polled mother line.

Roll out the red carpet everyone…

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!
