ANIMALS AVAILABLE

The herd has been tested or TB, CA and vaccinated for botulism and vaccinated with RB 51. These heifers come from a cowherd that
 has been in existence since 1987. The main herd comes from Natal, originally from Bartlow-Combine. ±70% of the females. ±10%
is made up from Venda, Lebowa and Makatini origins. 20% is made up from Pedi cattle and kept pure – mainly for their good size
and excellent feed conversion. A large portion of the Pedi’s came from the now defunct Stellenbosch herd in Lebowa, while the rest originated
 from the tribal herds in the Burgersfort district of Lebowa.

We still do performance testing and the chief focus is on efficiency, longevity and fertility. Average I C P is ± 374 days for a cow
herd of 450+ animals. We try to push for 2 cows per/ha, grazing on a crop rotation medic/grain system, whilst heifers at
between 3 to 4 per/ha: carry strategy is to aim for 830 – 850kg/ha biomass.
