News Article selected in the Archive of 2018:
FIGHTING and FIT with VALUES (GENOMICS)
Date:
March 2018


Getting ready for the Auction on Friday 18th of May 2018!

Considering the very little rain we had for the season, the bulls are fighting well above their weight class! There is no substitute for well-adapted, hardy and low maintenance cattle. Gaining weight, although slowly, on last year’s “green” grass. We select strongly for these “drought and/or farming-in-sync-with-nature” traits – both through official performance testing and our own “on- Hartebeestloop-farm” testing.

We have now taken the HUGE step and introduced the Single-Step Genomic model into the herd.

IMAGINE THIS – all the 2018 auction bulls, their mothers and the influential grandmothers will all be genotyped. In everyday farmers’ language – our bull recommendations will be FAR MORE ACCURATE and based on the latest technology in the beef cattle industry.

Recommendations will not just be on

  • visual inspection
  • or performance testing results
  • or BLUP Breeding Values
  • or a combination of all

    – it will now INCLUDE Genomic Enriched Breeding Values.

    This is the Total Package in the beef cattle industry!

    Some of our lectures on the Farmer’s Day (2018) will explain Genomics in layman terms.
    Believe me, THIS IS THE FUTURE for the beef cattle industry!
