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.

MONEY IS NOT EVERYTHING

…it’s the ONLY thing. We all know this saying

Give or take a couple of years and I predict it will be the same with polled Bonsmaras. THE.ONLY.THING.

What do these young Bonsmara bulls in the photograph have in common and what is unique about them? I think you may have guessed by now, YES!, they are all POLLED Hartebeestloop Bonsmara bulls.

Don’t be fooled - being polled does not necessarily mean being a good bull! In my opinion, great quality polled bulls can only be bred by applying stringent performance testing. Basically they must compete directly with the horned bulls in every aspect. We should not differentiate between polled and horned cattle when it comes to any quality testing. That is what we are striving for.

Most important to us is they must meet the requirements of the Hartebeestloop guarantee of satisfaction. And that will be the hardest part!

These are indeed exciting times for the Bonsmara community, making this great leap in creating a quality POLLED BONSMARA to make it a true WORLD BREED! Not taking part in polled Bonsmara breeding will be a no-go in the near future. Don’t miss the boat!

Watch out for a video clip of these bulls that we will showcase shortly!
