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…

But NOT nowhere to go!

Yeeha - this guy is READY to go to 40 DNA tested and confirmed POLLED Bonsmara cows. Don’t be part of the guessing team anymore, join the DNA team and increase the baby steps to elephant ones. All science and no play no more.

Currently the big challenge is to find polled Bonsmara bulls that can compete with the horned bulls in conformation, muscling, milk and growth. The scarcity of such bulls is slowing down the development of the polled Bonsmara. But not for long - Bonsmara breeders are known for overcoming any problem in the beef cattle industry. We have part of the solution with THIS polled bull – he is a good grower, well-fleshed with good conformation, adequate milk and a helluva head! :) Some more muscling would have been great though. :(

My personal opinion on the development of the polled Bonsmara?

A single breeder will not easily achieve this. It will have to be a concerted and combined effort of many breeders. Detailed breeding plans and objectives combined with an exchange of top polled genetics among the breeders, will be a great start to faster success. We would love to hear your input and opinion on the matter of breeding a top class polled Bonsmara.
