Our end however are many farmers’ new start – new start with new bulls or new female animals. Even lots of new knowledge gained at the Farmers’ Day! We wish them the best of luck and hope they will be equally blessed and happy!
Many thanks to all the roll players who made this event so successful. It is not possible to achieve something like this without all of you! Agra has again kicked in big time with their sponsorship in not just organizing the Farmers’ Day and providing us with delicious food, but also to ensure that farmers are exposed to meaningful exhibitors and interesting stalls. To our other sponsors, also thanks a lot! You guys rock!
But without support for both days, in VISITORS and BUYERS, this would all have meant nothing. A big thank you to you all! We sincerely hope to see you there again next year!!
We would like to quote Jim Rohn, “Whatever good things we build end up building us.” So true!
Our reward is indeed in this joyful journey with you all! God bless.

…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!
