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…

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!
